Description
Have you ever wondered why the American colors are red, white, and blue? Did you know that our national mascot was almost a turkey rather than a bald eagle? And who is Uncle Sam, anyway? America has always cherished symbols, and in this book for readers 4 to 8 or the curious of any age, Delno West and Jean West tell the story of the Liberty Bell, the Statue of Liberty, and the Mayflower. Other bits of Americana are also explained here, including the Minuteman, the peace pipe, the cowboy, and "Yankee Doodle." Christopher Manson's bold, hand-painted woodcuts have an appropriately vintage feel.
