America is made up of opposites: Our land boasts majestic high mountains and vast lowlands. America is also a land of contrasts: We are a rich nation, yet so many are poor. The America of this book, rendered with imagination and vision by 14-outstanding artists from diverse backgrounds, is the America that our children see around them. America: My Land, Your Land, Our Land is a visual celebration of America and a challenge to our children to cherish it, because they will one day inherit it.
