Synopsis : In words and pictures, this is a salute to our great country, the land of freedom for us and for people all over the world.
In her poetic text, Louise Borden evokes with bold strokes many aspects of our nation -- its farmlands, its prairies, its cattle country, its cities, its rivers, and the many kinds of people who live and work here. Mountains and deserts, waterfalls and beaches -- each of our states has special things to see and enjoy. And all over this country, our flag flies, with fifty stars for our current fifty states and thirteen broad stripes for our original thirteen colonies.
A few years ago, Louise Borden spoke to a group of schoolchildren in a library in Birmingham, England. When she finished, the very first question was, "What's it like to live in America?" This book is her answer. Readers of all ages will join in this salute to the place we call home, celebrated here in a simple, inspiring text and in lovely, atmospheric, full-color pictures.
