Forgotten America

Visitors to America never seem to see the “true” U.S. They hear our jokes about rednecks and laugh along; they vaguely know we have lots of corn fields but other than that the middle of America is a vast mystery. To dismiss the vast middle and bottom end of America as loosely populated and dull is to miss some of the most beautiful aspects of America; the rolling green hills of Illinois, the sunflower fields of Missouri, and the ponds and rivers that seem to go on and on.
