Summary Like so many young American couples, Chris Ingraham and his wife Briana were having a difficult time making ends meet as they tried to raise their twin boys in the East Coast suburbs. One day, Chris - in his role as a "data guy" reporter at the Washington Post - stumbled on a study that would change his life. It was a ranking of America's 3,000+ counties from ugliest to most scenic. He quickly scrolled to the bottom of the list and gleefully wrote the words "The absolute worst place to live in America is (drumroll please) ... Red Lake County, Minn." The story went viral, to put it mildly. Among the reactions were many from residents of Red Lake County. While they were unflappably polite - it's not called "Minnesota Nice" for nothing - they challenged him to look beyond the spreadsheet and actually visit their community. Ingraham, with slight trepidation, accepted. Impressed by the locals' warmth, humor and hospitality - and ever more aware of his financial situation and torturous commute - Chris and Briana eventually decided to relocate to the town he'd just dragged through the dirt on the Internet.
