About this title


Chronicles the history of the Statue of Liberty, from its design by French sculptor Bartholdi to its erection in New York Harbor, and tells of some people who have held great affection for the Lady during the last hundred years

From School Library Journal:

Grade 6 Up For the Statue of Liberty's centennial year, Harris has written an excellent and entertaining history of the construction and renovation of the colossal statue. The description of the efforts of Bartholdi and the several fund-raising committees involved with the birth of the Lady is interestingly paralleled by the description of the current efforts to finance the renovation. The chapters on the renovation are enhanced by the comments of the workmen performing the labor. Harris also chronicles the development of the Statue's role as "the Mother of Exiles" from Emma Lazarus' poem, as well as its use and abuse as a place for political protest and as a commercial emblem. It is intended for a slightly older audience than Burchard's The Statue of Liberty: Birth and Rebirth (HBJ, 1985) or Fisher's The Statue of Liberty (Holiday, 1985). It's worth having, both for its timeliness and for its own quality.Elaine Fort Weischedel, Turner Free Library, Randolph, Mass.
