[edit] The Divided States

This final episode finds Miriam smack in the middle of cowboy country - rural Arkansas - hanging out with Wild West cattle farmers and western goods emporium owners Dan and Peggy Eoff. Seduced by the landscape, Miriam feels the stark divide between city and country folk and sees first-hand why they feel Trump is their man. But the divisions don't stop there - Arkansas also has one of the highest concentrations of extreme race-hate groups in the US. A short drive from Dan and Peggy's, Miriam arrives in Harrison, once dubbed the most racist town in America.
