With the turn of each page, the characters that roam across these pages go astray.
They are emigrants, runaways, drifters; gold miners and counterfeiters, attorneys and slaves.
They cross borders of race, law, sex, and sanity. They travel for love or money, under duress or incognito.
A sequence of fourteen fact-inspired fictions about travels to, in and from North America, Astray offers a past in scattered pieces, a surprising and moving history for restless times.
