Storyline

Stephen travels through the basin of Old Man River, Northern America's greatest. This spans the Rockies to Appalachians and from the Great Lake to its Gulf of Mexico delta. Stephen starts in Louisiana, visiting New Orleans, site of Mardi Grass frivolity and superstition as well as the paternalistic Angola state penitentiary. Meditations about river-love, the restless nature of the American dream and immigration alter with visits to towns and cities in the vast Midwest plains and Minnesota sources. Included are the San Louis homeless, Vedic 'trans-meditational yoga' guru's Iowa commune HQ, second US economic city Chicago, Scandinavian and Hmong communities in the icy north. Written by KGF Vissers

That a lot of the stars, anyway, I mean George Clooney... That guy, Hugh... The one in "House", whatever his name is...
