Wendell Minor is an extraordinarily talented fine artist who has received over two hundred awards for his work. Authors refer to him as a "quiet genius" who creates with simplicity and elegance, a "master" at capturing the essence of the written word in vivid imagery, of creating brilliant paintings that evoke the true spirit of story and place. He has illustrated hundreds of book covers for many of the most popular books of the past few decades.Now, inspired by Katharine Lee Bates's classic verse, Minor gives readers beautiful visual accompaniment for an American standard. Traversing the entire nation, from New York City to Pikes Peak, from the Oregon coast to the Florida Everglades; encompassing multiple eras, from Pilgrims to wagon trains, from the Wright brothers to NASA, Minor takes us on a journey across land and time - literally from sea to shining sea. With his stunning paintings of American landscapes and historical moments, he celebrates our nation's history and beauty and transforms a musical tribute into a visual masterpiece.

Good book for children to learn about our country and learn how we became a free nation. Good factual book, children need to learn about America and be proud about the country.

My kindergarten age daughter checked this bood out from the library at school. Loves the pictures and singing the song with her toy karaoke machine. So we purchased it for her for Christmas. She was sooo excited. Still loves singing this song with the family and by herself. Great book. Highly Recommended.
