Description

From the Texas border to Alaska's coast, from Hollywood to Manhattan, this wonderful book crisscrosses America to create a spectacular panorama. Captured in stunning photos and sparkling prose, here are glittering cities and lonely prairies, majestic rivers and magnificent mountains, along with every kind of human endeavor and accomplishment. Here are firsthand descriptions of the deadly eruption of Mount St. Helens in 1980 and of the devastation of Hurricane Andrew in 1992. You'll fly with America's sweetheart, Amelia Earhart, alone across the Pacific in the 1930s - and witness man's landing on the moon three decades later. You'll go to powwows with Native Americans, travel the nation with migrant beekeepers. You'll explore every aspect of the American experience. This is at once an illustrated omnibus of one hundred years of life in the United States and an inside look at the classic journal that has chronicled the American century with such an observant and wide-ranging eye. Come with National Geographic - On Assignment USA.
