Synopsis

America the Beautiful by Katharine Lee Bates, Chris Gall

From his unique perspective as the great, great grandnephew of 'America the Beautiful' writer, Katharine Lee Bates, Chris Gall transforms this beloved patriotic song into monumental works of art - from purple mountain majesties to gleaming alabaster cities. Honouring his ancestry and national pride, Gall pairs the beautiful lyrics with striking illustrations of notable American images such as Pike's Peak, the Tuskgee Airmen and firefighters raising the American flag at Ground Zero.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
