Description

"America The Beautiful" has been stirring hearts for generations, andnow Wendell Minor provides a spectacular visual accompaniment for the classic poem and song. Sing along to the familiar lyrics, turning each page as the musical tribute is transformed into a visual feast that spans the entire nation, from New York City to the Oregon coast, and encompasses multiple eras, from the Pilgrims to the Wright brothers to NASA. Wendell Minor's stunning paintings of American landscapes and historical moments celebrate our nation--from sea to shining sea.
