Summary
Nobody Rich or Famous is a literary memoir about family and place. Shelton travels to his childhood home in rural Idaho to connect with his past and discover his family history. The manuscript touches upon family dynamics, death and mortality, alcoholism, abusive relationships, and life in the rural and urban West. The book simultaneously exposes the conflicts within Shelton's family while illustrating life in Great Basin during the first half of the 20th century
