Kelsey Timmerman's book Where Am I Wearing? A Global Tour to the Countries, Factories, and People That Make Our Clothes describes the connection between impoverished garment workers' standards of living and the all-American material lifestyle.

When journalist and traveler Kelsey Timmerman wanted to know where his clothes came from and who made them, he began a journey that would take him from Honduras to Bangladesh to Cambodia to China and back again. Where Am I Wearing? introduces readers to the human element of globalization - the factory workers, their names, their families, and their way of life - and bridges the gap between global producers and consumers.
