Pipher, author of The Middle of Everywhere: Helping ReJugees Enter the American Community, has written an intensively personal narrative exploring her own consciousness as well as giving an eye-opening treatise on the immigrant experience. Although some approached this conflict with a combative spirit, patriotic zeal, or a call for isolationism, Pipher chose a personal approach culled from her first hand experience with some of these newest immigrants. Pipher did not set out to do an ethnographic study. One emerged spontaneously as she became involved in the lives of refugees, migrant workers, and other recent immigrants.
