Editorial Reviews

Shirley Johnson
He makes us see America at her best, America in her struggles, and feel the sorrows and joys of our fellow Countrymen, all bringing to fruition what America was yesterday, what America is today, and what America will be tomorrow. American Lyricon speaks forth the heart of America. Whispers of the past, thoughts for the present and prayers for the future are the feelings etched in my heart after reading this work.
