Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free..." andlt;BRandgt; Follow the journey of the Statue of Liberty from 1865 to today as it goes from being a mere glimmer in the eyes of two Frenchmen to becoming a colossal gift to the United States, a gesture of friendship between the two nations, a monument to the first hundred years of American independence, and a symbol of liberty for all.

Synopsis:

With illustrations as beautiful and stunning as the statue herself, Lynn Curlee brings us back to 19th century France to follow the creation of the Statue of Liberty. Once a mere glimmer in the eyes of two Frenchmen in 1865, this statue now shines over New York and our nation as a symbol of peace, hope, and freedom.

Synopsis:

One of the nation's symbols of freedom and liberty--the Statue of Liberty--is celebrated in this "biography" that looks at the statue's creation by two Frenchmen in the 19th century. Full-color illustrations.
