One of the most recognizable patriotic songs in the United States today, "America the Beautiful" started out as a poem inspired by the captivating scenery of the West. Written in 1893 by college professor Katharine Lee Bates, the lyrics evoke images of wheat fields, towering mountains, and skies spanning the vast country. Its melody, however, was added decades after the poem's first publication. Today, the song is used as an unofficial national anthem celebrating America's beauty and its future prospects of opportunity. This book explores the song's history, its significance, and its journey to patriotic celebration in simple and concise language. The narrative offers a variety of features including easy-to-read sheet music, sidebars, fun facts, timelines, and vivid photographs. It tells the story, engages readers, and celebrates the song's place in the patriotic canon today.

America Throne is living the good life in L.A. Her career is sprouting, and she is in love -- with Jasper Husch, a sexy-sultry artist from San Fran. But just as soon as they've realized domestic bliss, Jasper has a change of heart, and America falters on the slippery slope of hope: hoping that he will come back, hoping that new sex will erase all evidence of him, and hoping that in nurturing a truce with her dead father she will make peace with all men. America's trip from self-destruction to wholeness is a romp on the wilder shores of the West Coast. From a dodgy therapist to a silent retreat, America Throne's "aha" moment culminates with, "While we are all busy swimming upstream, the universe is conspiring to take us to something better." In America the Beautiful, Moon Zappa has taken the broken-heart story and given it a twist all her own through the emotional honesty and edginess of America Throne. Hailed as "brilliant" (Sunday Telegraph Magazine), America the Beautiful is the debut of an unforgettable and unfaltering new voice.
