American Drifter

by Amy Hoff



Everything you wanted to know and couldn’t ask about life on the road, dive bars, places of the United States, survival pro tips and the liminal lives of the American Drifters!


This was a time when rusted out payphones were the only method of communication. Those long highways were places you could get lost forever, and not always in a good way. Inhabit this world, feel the steering wheel under your hands, and the endlessness of what was once America.


Amy Hoff spent years traveling across the United States, living out of cars and cheap motels. She was a weightlifter and street-fighter, collecting monster legends across the country. Eventually she left the USA and continued traveling around the world. She was educated in Scotland and specialized in Scottish history, literature, and folklore. She is now a folklorist and historian whose primary research interest is monsters, and a specialist in American highway legends. She has never owned more than what can fit into a backpack and a suitcase.
