Illuminating the experiences of life in small-town America, award-winning writer for CBS News Peter Davis pens an ode to a small town thirty miles north of Cincinnati—documenting its strengths and struggles over the course of a year.

After a scandal involving a high school teacher caught his interest, award-winning news writer Peter Davis spent a year studying life in Hamilton, Ohio.

While examining the small town during an intense time of change, including segregation of schools and economic decline, Davis shares an honest, full scope view of the life in a small town during the 1960s.

Hometown takes readers into the forces that unite and divide the small-town community of Hamilton through a look at politics, sports, marriage, crime, and social lives in a variety of classes.
Peter Davis graduated from Harvard University. He was an Emmy and Peabody Award-winning writer and producer from CBS News. He won an Academy Award from his film Hearts and Minds. He lives in New York City with his wife and children.
