How do you sum up a whole country in just 100 words? This striking book takes on the challenge. From amendment to Vegas, each of the carefully chosen 100 words has its own 100-word-long description and beautiful illustration, providing a snapshot of what the U.S.A. means to people today: its roots, values, culture, and customs. With "speech," readers 9 to 12 learn about the First Amendment, while through "Rosa," they can learn about the civil rights movement. Here too are Manhattan, blues, freedom, Hollywood, immigrant, protest, superhero, Moon, Texas, and Washington, adding perspective on the many facets of American culture.
