Robinson says of these songs, "They are rooted in the hundreds of scenes and stories I have taken in traveling through this vast, seemingly endless landscape of a country. I hope in listening to them you will find those same feelings that I have felt being immersed in the peoples and places that we call America - feelings of seeming insignificance tempered by that of the wonderful importance of people.
