Written by Steve Boggan
Still following the money, the same ten dollar bill he released in Kansas, the author finds himself driving east across America and being offered hospitality by a mixed race couple who have fought their own battles, in their own way, with the world around them.
Having been asked by a newspaper editor, several years ago, to pursue a ten pound note through a series of transactions in Britain , Steve Boggan decides to undertake something more ambitious - to spend 30 days following the same ten dollar bill across America. What might appear to be a whimsical conceit becomes a surprisingly poignant and often funny foray into the heartland of the ordinary. Surrendering himself to the decisions of others and their daily purchases proves to be a strangely cathartic experience which also opens his eyes to a world of serendipity and unexpected kindness.
