And as soon as Bill Bryson was old enough he left Des Moines couldn t hold him but it did lure him back After ten years in England he returned to the land of his youth and drove almost miles in search of a mythical small town called Amalgam the kind of trim and sunny place where the films of his youth were set Instead his search led him to Anywhere USA a lookalike strip of gas stations motels and hamburger outlets populated by lookalike people with a penchant for synthetic fibres Travelling around thirty eight of the lower states united only in their mind numbingly dreary uniformity he discovered a continent that was doubly lost lost to itself because blighted by greed pollution mobile homes and television lost to him because he had become a stranger in his own land .
