The Uniroyal Tire Factory in Eau Claire, Wisconsin closed in 1992. The cover of this book shows the number of plant closings for each state from 2003 through 2005. It was a loss of 2,700 factories and three million jobs. America’s Heartbeat is the story of one factory closing and how it affected one community. What happened to it, however, was the beginning of what occurred in just about every major community throughout Amercia. Between 1992 and the time of the book's publication in 2015, 60,000 other American factories shut down.
