The sweeping scope of Myers's free verse poems is captured beautifully and interpreted dramatically on this CD by a diverse cast of narrators. This eminently patriotic book celebrates free expression and attempts to paint with word pictures the depth and breadth of the varied American experience. ... the chorus of voices, music, and sounds tell the unique story of America and its people in 33 breathless minutes. Truly inspirational." --School Library Journal
