It's absolutely great . I find that looking at the history of our country should be a subject taught in every school in America . What a wonderful way to take pride in your country . I often say (and i know i read this somewhere ) How are you going to know where you're going , if you don't know where you've been .
The book is awesome. Real pictures of everyday life. I used to live in the area and even in these images, as old as they are, you can still tell where everything is today. This book itself is hardcover and very well made.
