How does a pretty, decently educated, organically grown woman become an alien in her own country? This is the story about a girl who grows up running on the back roads of her small hometown and winds up taking the long way home. It unmasks the rare and intimate complexity of the life and mind of a woman who wanted to experience America first-hand rather than listen to opinions about it. Taking to the open road, she lives her life close to the bone, armed with little else besides raw instinct and intuition. Her heart pulls her back and forth across the continent, as she leaves no stone unturned. She stumbles and falls, but gets up again and again, and attempts to retain faith in the ideals she believes America is based upon, as part of the vanguard of the women of “Generation X”.
