MOSSLESS: Timothy, for your series Boonville you visited six different towns with that name. How different were the towns to each other?
Timothy Briner: Remarkably similar. They were different from each other in the sense that each one had their own special something that they identified with. For example North Carolina’s Boonville was built on tobacco farming, upstate New York’s Boonville had logging, Indiana’s Boonville was a mining town, and Boonville in Missouri was built on the Missouri river, so they identified with the river and shipping. But they were more similar than they were different. Oh, and Boonville in California had weed.
