An American anthem written over 100 years ago, in very picturesque language, this splendid panorama of words leaves many scenes vividly etched upon our minds. These are now brought to life using photos along with the original stanzas. This gives the reader somewhat more to work with than the usual text alone.
On a trip across America from the East into the West, Katherine Bates was able to view much of our scenic nation – which then begged to be written about! Her insight and enthusiasm for what she saw from the train in 1890s America inspired her to write about our country and its Maker.
Now, as a tribute to our brave people, this beauteous land, and to our Creator, this volume is available for all Americans everywhere to see – to appreciate, perhaps for the first time, to relive and regain the fervor of what it means to be an American.
As we do so much enjoy our freedom in this great land, so enjoy this journey through The United States of America!
