    David John Smith
What do Thomas Jefferson, a Greyhound bus, California, a Vietnam draft-dodger, Russian trappers, a Cajun goddess, marijuana, a deep Texas night, JFK, a traveler named Michael, and a host of supporting characters have in common? It is the search for the American Dream. This is Amerincantation: ? a·mer·i·ca - The land of the free, home of the brave ? in·can·ta·tion - An enchantment, a magical spell that is applied to a person, place or thing that changes its qualities in a positive way. The story of Cinderella is the best known incantation. The journey begins in the mountains of Virginia but goes far beyond, searching into the soul of America and what it was, what it is, and what it can still become. Seen through the eyes of the intellectual drifter Michael, the dialogue and vivid descriptions that await the reader are inspiring as Amerincantation poses the questions and the answers through those who know America best ? themselves. If you are from the United States, it is likely you will find yourself in this book. For those from the rest of the world, Amerincantation may give you insights that will help you to better understand the phenomenon that is America. DAVID JOHN SMITH is a typical American in many ways, born in Delaware, raised in Pennsylvania, and lived in Texas, California and Arizona before moving to Europe in the 1980s. He has hitchhiked, driven, flown and otherwise traveled the length and breadth of the American continent, searching for the American Dream.
