Overview

For beautiful, for spacious skies: from the fog-shrouded coastal towns of New England and the magnificent Shenandoah Valley to the vast fertile lands of the Midwest and the awe-inspiring, snow capped Rocky Mountains, America is indeed glorious. Whether the image displays Vermont's rolling hills ablaze in autumnal colors or California's Big Sur, every one of these 440 pictures of American beauty is a visual treasure. The breathtaking sights, both natural and man-made, range from New York City's dazzling skyline to an elegant, antebellum mansion in Mississippi, from the wonder of Niagara Falls to the awe-inspiring rugged rock formations of Monument Valley. Pictures carry you off to sparkling Hawaiian beaches, a vast expanse of golden wheat growing high on a farm, the charming Savannah riverfront, Chicago's Wrigley Field, and a joyful Mardi Gras parade in New Orleans. The people, the monuments, the big cities and small towns: they're all represented in a visual voyage you'll never forget.
