In Dreamland, Sam Quinones chronicles how, over the past 15 years, enterprising sugar cane farmers in a small country on the west coast of Mexico created a unique distribution system that brought black tar heroin to the veins of people in the United States. Communities like Charlotte, NC and Salt Lake City, UT communities that had never seen heroin before were overrun with it. How could heroin, a drug that had been trafficked into the country by giant Columbian drug cartels be so ubiquitous in American heartland? Who was bringing it here? Sam Quinones weaves together two classic tales of American capitalism: the stories of young men in Mexico that were independent of the drug cartels in search of their own American Dream and that of Purdue Pharma in Stamford, Connecticut determined to corner the market on pain with its new miracle drug, Oxycotin. Quinones illuminates just how these two stories fit together. Dreamland is a scathing account of drug culture and addiction that is spreading to every part of the American landscape.
