Overview

Fantastic debut Time Out 5-Star Review

'Its randomness is its joy' The Independent

'A picaresque travelogue about chasing an idea through down-home modern America.' The Times

What do you do if you want to get underneath the skin of a country, to understand its people and feel its heartbeat? You can follow the rest of the tourists, or you can take the advice of Watergate reporter Bob Woodward s source, Deep Throat , and follow the money.

Starting out in Lebanon, Kansas the geographical centre of America journalist Steve Boggan did just that by setting free a ten-dollar-bill and accompanying it on an epic journey for thirty days and thirty nights through six states across 3,000 miles armed only with a sense of humour and a small, and increasingly grubby, set of clothes. As he cuts crops with farmers in Kansas, pursues a repo-woman from Colorado, gets wasted with a blues band in Arkansas and hangs out at a quarterback s mansion in St Louis, Boggan enters the lives of ordinary people as they receive and pass on the bill. What emerges is a chaotic, affectionate and funny portrait of a modern-day America that tourists rarely see.
