For the father it was a brief return to the country that was his home for the first two decades of his life. For his son, it was an introduction to the country that had shaped his father. This book is about this land seen more intimately than is possible in a car. It is also about the people they met along the way: Saint Cecil of Natalbany, Louisiana- Ma and the homebody farmer at Mas Hitching Post in rural Tennessee- Dennis The Hustler in Nashville- Rose and Albert at The Jam Factory in Louisville- the Third Brother in Bowling Green- Jimmy of The Crow Bar in Sabina- Billy The Biker on the Geneva Strip- and many others, all people that somehow within minutes (or hours) came to personify and capture, like apt images in a poem, the heart of America.
