Highway 40 West is a journey past the American history, too, from the taking of the land in the east to the places of the gold rushes in the west. And it's about everyday-life in America: about the people you can meet on the street, about the story of their life, their fun and their troubles; how they work and get through, how they live in these big cities and these small towns; it's about living on this road, about motels, music and police, days and nights and the changes of the seasons, the proud "goaheadativness" and all the junk left behind.
