It is such a delight to browse this book over an hour or two - if you can't appreciate some of these visuals then frankly there's just no hope for you!
There's one picture of Evander Holyfield, the boxer, - he's sat on his marble staircase at his antebellum mansion, in Georgia. It has 400 acres of grounds. For me it is the height of luxury and achievement. I could cry when I think that he lost it all of his millions and ended up broke - especially in such a brutal sport! He earned it and threw it all away. How could you do that Evander!
And, take a look at a pic' from New Town, North Dakota. Here we see Amy Mossett, a Mandan Indian, placed on the plains, overlooking the Missouri River. It is such a powerfully poignant photo. How could America do what they did to their own? Well, that's another story isn't it? -but the picture screams Why!
The very best photos make you stop & think - there are so many in here that do exactly that.
If you have a fascination about America then this book is for you - it's such a delight, you will not regret it.
You know, before I looked through this book, I didn't even realise that Tulsa, Gene Pitney), was in Oklahoma! In fact, I never really thought about where it actually was other than in the states.
That's the magic of books like this!
