A Month in the Life of A Ten-dollar Bill

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 humor 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 the real modern-day America.

Well written and lively, love this
travel-log format. The only real
"problem" is that some of the
segments seem overly long or too
scripted: I have difficulty seeing most
people holding on to a $10 bill for as
long as the folks in this book. But
entertaining enough.
