Summary
An American classic is born! Breathtaking folk art-style illustrations that are ageless as well as timeless capture the culture, history, and heritage of the United States--from A to Z. It's a high-quality, exquisite tribute to America. With beautiful pictures that echo the artistic legacy of generations of American painters, award-winning artist Martin Jarrie has created a unique volume that everyone will cherish. It's suitable for little ones learning their ABCs, slightly older kids who want to find out more about their country's symbols, and grownups who appreciate fine art. Best of all, it truly goes to the heart of the American spirit in all its diversity and depth. Here are treasured landmarks, significant events that shaped the nation's development, and also the flora, fauna, and fun things so dear to our hearts. A is for alligator, and B is for baseball--and the image shows a great big mitt, a player at bat, and a pitcher winding up. G is for the Grand Canyon, portrayed in deep, earthy colors topped by a violet sky. H is for Hollywood, depicted in a witty montage. P features Pilgrims, R has a Rodeo, and U reminds us of the Underground Railroad. At the book's end, two spreads with thumbnail versions of every picture provide additional background information. No other American-themed ABC is its equal
