Read an Excerpt


From sea to shining sea, the United States of America is brimming with history, natural beauty, and iconic people and places.

In 1776, fifty-six men—including future presidents John Adams and Thomas Jefferson—signed the Declaration of Independence, thereby freeing the original 13 colonies from Britain’s rule. A year later, the Revolutionary War began, and on October 19, 1781, America won its independence when Britain surrendered. What began as 13 small colonies eventually grew to 50 states. The U.S.A. is now the third largest country in the world!

Follow along as we explore this great land—from coast to coast, mountains to plains, and fields to deserts. Along the way, you’ll learn how to draw some of America’s renowned people and historical places, as well as symbols and features that make each state unique.
