Take a picaresque journey in search of the spirit and soul of America, an America beyond the headlines. An antidote to the Age of Trump, A Beautiful Broken Dream is a "trail journal" of stories, poems and lyrics—all tied together by a journey through the most beautiful and haunting landscapes America has to offer. With Steve Bonham as your guide, visit the great forests of the U.S. and take a trip along the music road from Asheville to Nashville and New Orleans, where you'll be joined by Bonham's sometime-travelling companion and great friend, the artist Dinny Pocock. Endeavour to avoid irritable bears, rattlesnakes, agitated natives and a variety of other challenges while throwing yourself into the heart of Appalachia, the southern states, and the music that flows from it. What you'll end up with is a wry, compassionate, idiosyncratic and personal view of this land and the truth it holds for all of us.
