We are all from bad stock in America. Some of us just decent it up and deny. I often think about who would get on a boat to somewhere unknown and unseen, leave everything civilized and stable, not even knowing if they’d fall off the edge of the world. What kind of people would leave for a new world? People with nothing to lose—the same kind of girl I was, wanting to get as far away from Idaho as I could: take me to a new world. Curious people. People who like to drink and curse and pray their own way—nothing to lose. Wild Americans. MISS IMAHO is a story of that inheritance.
