The America we know.
A new spread in the vastness of the edge. The western edge where the world ended — and now begins.
The new frontier brought with it the harshness of the old country, eager to build anew on the back of the poor, unwilling and enslaved.
The new world was the naive world too. The dream made the dreamers — wearing a simple lens. The warm and soft Americana poured over the cold coals of oppression, made for painful coexistence.
Weaving the good, the bad and the ugly into one quilt will undoubtedly shine a bright light on our collective futures.
