Caroline McInnes is tired of being used for her money and her father’s influence, so she flees her hometown of Cleveland to claim free land in Nebraska. Her first taste of Nebraska, however, comes with consequences, when a snowstorm nearly ruins her plans. While riding out the storm, Caroline meets cattle rancher Henry Riley, and when desperate times call for desperate measures, Henry quickly proposes a solution. With no other choice, Caroline accepts, and the two agree that they can make things work. As friendship blooms between them, Caroline fears that Henry may be falling in love with her, which she claims she doesn’t want. With help from her neighbors and friends, Caroline learns what it’s like to be a frontier woman, and realizes she likes it — and that she, too, has feelings for Henry. When Henry discovers that Caroline has been lying to him, she’ll do whatever it takes to prove that she loves him.

Just reading the word "subsidies" may cause people's eyes to glaze over. We don't think it affects us directly, so we tune out. But it turns out that this complicated-sounding issue has an enormous impact on all of us. The Big Handout is about bad fiscal, environmental, agricultural, water, energy, health, and foreign policies. And it's a story about just one thing-subsidies. A subsidy is a grant by the government to a private business that is deemed advantageous to the public. Cotton, wheat, corn, soy, and oil are the most subsidized commodities in the United States. In this eye-opening book, New York Times best-selling author Thomas Kostigen explores government policies that cost taxpayers $200 billion per year, over $1,500 per household. In some cases we pay more for subsidized goods than we'd pay in a free market-and, in the most shocking abuses of the subsidy system, we pay for goods that aren't even produced.
The Big Handout exposes how artificial pricing hurts us and people worldwide, from our waistlines and pocketbooks to our health. By revealing just how toxic America's subsidy system has become, for everyone, The Big Handout is a wake-up call that empowers readers to effect change.
