Synopsis: American Road is a story of an alienated trio who has journeyed too quickly through a bizarre and dehumanized world a world that vibrates in its instincts and yet shivers at the vulgarity. Therefore, this story is told to the intuitive student, who best envisions all of whom we are, considers how to best address our challenges, and has a fondness for our own silliness. Thought-provokingly written with its focus on the worst and the very best of our democracy, American Road is a historic tale of surviving hardship, raising our children, teaching our youth, valuing a friend, celebrating our successes, and remembering our lives. Traveling fast, this is a tale of human weakness and how this weakness impacts our democracy. Unsettled by our own frailties and flaws, our history has produced figures that believed that our democracy would thrive in the suppression of our weaknesses and flaws. But it is in these very characteristics that our democracy becomes humane. Centuries ago, Homer wrote of a hero who returned home to bring justice back into his homeland. Tennyson wrote of the same man, who refused to lay idle in the face of tragedy. James Joyce wrote similarly of a man who sought freedom and peace. Today, heroes much the same travel our heartland in search of American ideals justice, wisdom, freedom, and peace; the American ideal that democracy is not just a part of our humanity but that humanity is crucial to our democracy. These heroes are Americans who made real their declaration of independence.
