Summary
"American Highlights presents a window of the United States, capturing its feel and flavor as well as the overall shape of its history. Through over 80 works of art and lively short text pieces in both English and Spanish, the book covers daily life and popular culture, including baseball, P.T. Barnum's circus, Hollywood, and television, in addition to broad themes such as immigration and industrial change. It focuses on individuals--Benjamin Franklin, Abraham Lincoln, the Wright brothers...as well as on major events. From a fifteenth century map that Columbus might have used to a contemporary computer image, the pictures convey the exciting sweep of American history. Among them are works by the greatest American artists, including Winslow Homer, Thomas Eakins, Edward Hopper, Romare Bearden, and Robert Rauchenberg...."
