Cradle to GraveBook - 2001
Alcohol: Cradle to Grave contains the newspaper series that brought Montana journalist Eric Newhouse to the attention of Pulitzer Prize jurors. A thorough and revealing account of how alcohol courses through the daily life and traditions of Great Falls, Montana, Alcohol: Cradle to Grave chronicles the everyday impact of America's most popular drug of choice. Newhouse methodically tallies the societal costs of alcohol abuse in one community. His calculations are staggering, including millions of dollars annually for law enforcement, health care, foster care, domestic violence programs, welfare, special education, and corrections.
