This poignant, first-of-its-kind book celebrates words that define America's storied past and symbolize the drive of its people?from the boardrooms of Manhattan to the farm fields of Iowa. Author Ryan Coonerty highlights profound phrases inscribed on 52 monuments and public sites. Some are famed monuments like the Lincoln Memorial; others are simple or stark places of honor, such as Angel Island, where immigrant Chinese scrawled their words on imprisoning walls. Etched In Stone unfolds the American saga from four perspectives. "In Praise of Public Lives" celebrates leaders, thinkers, and innovators. "Ordinary Heroes" honors ordinary people who did extraordinary things. "Bearing Witness" seeks to remind future generations of horrendous moments in history that must not be repeated, while "A More Perfect Union" reveals the promises of America?freedom and future. Stunning images by noted architectural photographer Carol Highsmith enhance the powerful messages and give each site a life and purpose beyond stone. The dramatic interplay of words and photographs makes this a beautiful gift book that will strongly appeal to all readers interested in American history, architecture, culture, and art

Also in this package is a boxed set of 52 cards with a cardboard easel included. Each card has a different quote from the Idaho Anne Frank Human Rights Memorial on one side, and the Wassmuth Center for Human Rights logo on the other.
