From Library Journal 
Kubota, a Japanese-born photojournalist, traveled around the United States for three years and took more than 3500 rolls of film to put together this beautiful work. The book is divided into ten geographical regions, but the photographs represent a composite of an extremely large and diverse country. Creating a "mural of America," as Charles Kuralt states in the introduction, Kubota offers natural landscapes, human-made structures, and the American people at work, play, and worship. Many of the photographic themes are predictable and a bit trite, but they are so beautifully captured that the photos can give the viewer a new light on an old subject. An excellent addition to the ever-increasing library of photographic works on the United States. -- Melinda Stivers Leach, Precision Editoral Svces., Wondervu, Col.

A potpourri of colors, flavors, and human and natural expression in America, as captured by Japanese-born photographer Kubota. This dynamic collection of color photographs is arranged by region (with end-notes describing locations), and accompanied (but not encumbered) by a brief introduction from Charles Kuralt and commentary by the photographer about his work and point of view. A traveling exhibition of these photographs is planned. 12.25x11.75" Annotation copyright Book News, Inc.... read more
