Summary It's a Dickensian tale: intellectually disabled men living in an old schoolhouse in a tiny Iowa farm town, reporting every dawn to eviscerate turkeys in return for food, lodging, and $65 a month. Told with compassion and compelling detail, The Boys in the Bunkhouse is a clarion call for a vigilance that ensures inclusion and dignity for all.
