The Book of Mamie is the story of one person's struggle to overcome the abuse and traumas of her childhood. It is the story of a wonderfully gifted young woman, a young woman of genius, uncanny wisdom and primitive strength, whose revelations unfold in the course of an odyssey across the heartland of America. Mamie's story is told by her companion, a 15-year-old farmboy who shares her adventures with a wild variety of characters and whose own story becomes a rite of passage as they try to stay one step ahead of the law and Mamie's sinister father.
