9781581823974: USA to Z: A Celebration of American Popular Culture

What do Raggedy Ann dolls, grizzly bears, Texas papershell pecans, and country music legend Patsy Cline have in common? They are all wondrously American phenomena, as much a part of our national heritage as the flag. What about the Golden Gate Bridge, Wurlitzer jukeboxes, sizzling hot Louisiana pepper sauce, and comedian Jack Benny? The connection is the same -- they are in USA to Z. One of the most compelling and delightful popular culture treasuries published in decades, USA to Z tells the story of Ivory Soap and the Model-T Ford, probes the intricate glories of Navajo rugs and Frank Lloyd Wright architecture, and celebrates the genius of Benny Goodman and Humphrey Bogart. Organized from A to Z, it is a whimsical collection of more than 350 of our country9s finest products, richest traditions, and most inspiring people. Readers will learn, laugh, and -- as a bonus -- find out how they can personally enjoy each and every one of the great things mentioned in the book. How to make a Dagwood sandwich. How to buy a little Radio Flyer wagon for their kids. Where to see a dancing armadillo. Just keep turning the pages. It's probably here.
