Overview

From sea to shining sea-including a quick stop at Fort Payne, Alabama, the Official Sock Capital of the World-there's something for everyone in this great nation. With compelling juxtapositions of pictures and text, Hubert Pedroli and Mary Tiegreen showcase a select 1,001.

The newest addition to the successful 1,001 series, this cross-country collection invites us to view our homeland and its people from a fresh perspective. Vintage images, breathtaking landscapes, and thought-provoking excerpts revel in the incredible diversity of America. There's Tupperware, the safety pin, and Velcro. There's also national parks, vintage cars, and, of course, the Bill of Rights. Patriotic and nonpartisan, this book is the perfect gift, no matter what your political affiliation. A thousand-plus ways to pledge allegiance: What's not to love?
