A poetic and inspiring tribute to the beauty and wonder of America’s history, landscape, and symbols, illustrated by acclaimed artist Kadir Nelson.

With wonderfully spare, deceptively simple verses Sarvinder Naberhaus has composed a lyrical celebration of the iconic imagery of our nation, beginning with the American flag. Each page, sumptuously illustrated by award-winning artist Kadir Nelson, depicts a richly evocative tableau, from the view of the Statue of Library at Ellis Island to civil rights marchers banded together, to a spacecraft at Cape Canaveral blasting off. This book is an ode to America then and now, from sea to shining sea.
