About the book:

An inspiring homage to a beloved anthem. From his unique perspective as the great-great-grandnephew of Katharine Lee Bates, the woman who wrote 'America the Beautiful,' Chris Gall transforms this unfaltering symbol of American strength and beauty-from 'purple mountain majesties' to gleaming 'alabaster cities'-into monumental works of art. Honoring his ancestry and profound national pride, Gall enhances these timely lyrics with historical and contemporary imagery as diverse as Sacagawea's travels with Lewis and Clark, the Tuskegee Airmen, and firefighters raising the American flag at Ground Zero. Musical notation and an author's note, as well as the song's words written in Bates's own hand, are also included in this remarkable book for all ages.
