We the People

(2008)
The Story of Our Constitution
A Picture Book by

 
Now in paperback, Lynne Cheney's New York Times bestselling illustrated history of how the Constitution came to be.

"I am mortified beyond expression when I view the clouds which have spread over the brightest morn that ever dawned upon any country." - George Washington

America had won the Revolution, but our troubles were far from over. The thirteen states were squabbling, the country could not pay its bills, and in Massachusetts farmers had taken up arms against the government. Was our country, which had fought so hard for its independence, going to survive?

In May 1787 delegates from across the country - including George Washington, James Madison, and Benjamin Franklin - gathered in Philadelphia and, meeting over the course of a sweltering summer, created a new framework for governing: the Constitution of the United States. Their efforts turned a shaky alliance of states into a nation that would prosper and grow powerful, drawing its strength for centuries to come from "We the people" and inspiring hope for freedom around the world.

Now in paperback for the first time, this richly illustrated tale of a crucial point in our nation's history will enthrall readers young and old.
