A celebration of America - a nation that the Pilgrims described as a shining city upon a hill and that Lincoln called the last, best hope of mankind. It features thousand entries which include a mix of American concepts, institutions, inventions, historical documents, social trends, cultural icons, geographical wonders, and consumer products.
"1,000 Things to Love About America" is a joyful celebration of a nation that the Pilgrims described as a shining city upon a hill and that Lincoln called the last, best hope of mankind. The four journalists who wrote "1,000 Years, 1,000 People", which "USA Today" called 'a fascinating history less and conversation topic', now team up again to pay unabashed tribute to the greatness of our country. The thousand entries include a broad mix of wholly American concepts, institutions, inventions, historical documents, social trends, cultural icons, geographical wonders, and consumer products. They range from the Constitution and Mount Rushmore to backyard decks and Internet shopping, from baseball and poker to Ultimate Frisbee and the Superbowl, from the Fifth Amendment and Freedom of the Press to Hollywood Sirens and Sesame Street. Pithy, accessible, illuminating and always entertaining, "1,000 Things to Love About America" serves as an unapologetic assertion that the U.S.A. is an amazing place to call home, highlighting both history and fascinating trivia along the way.
