Let's Visit the USA

(1967)
A non fiction book by

 
Noel Barber asks: What is America?
And, more startling still, he actually manages to answer this many-sided and fascinating question within the text and illustrations of this book.
The scope of the answer ranges from the discovery by Columbus-or was it Leif Ericson?-to the New Frontier; from Washington and the seat of the Government to the farms of the midwest ; from the deep South to the skyscrapers of Manhattan ; and from the great industrial centres such as Detroit to the deserts of Texas.
Let's Visit the U.S.A. also gives the reader a clear and colourful picture of the answer to a further, even more enthralling question: Who are the Americans? For this is not only a united single people, it is a combination of national, cultural and religious heritages brought to the New World from Europe, Africa and Asia.
Noel Barber, who is an author and journalist with a well established reputation for direct and graphic writing, has produced an ideal introduction to America and the Americans-as they are today and as they have been in the past: adding, for extra interest and to stimulate the young reader, a hint of what they may become in the future.
Th.s book, with its dramatic photographic illustrations, its detailed and accurate map and its helpful index, makes informative and exciting reading.
