Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The State of Alabama is diverse and scenic, with reflections of deep southern beauty everywhere. From the mountains and lakes of northern Alabama to the sugary white beaches lining the southern Gulf coast, Alabama captures the highlights of a diverse set of natural wonders such as: Mount Whitney DeSoto Falls Gulf State Park Oak Mountain State Park.

Some of the most notable events in American history took place in the state where Civil War battles were fought and the civil rights movement began. Among the most interesting landmarks are those that trace the battle which led to the reversal of segregation laws. The Rosa Parks Museum sits on the site where Parks was arrested for refusing to yield her seat on a bus to a white man. Martin Luther King Jr. preached his sermons on equality and justice from the pulpit of the Dexter Avenue Baptist Church. Alabama also boasts high-tech cities and is home to the sprawling U.S. Space and Rocket Center.

This book is a breathtaking visual guide to a historic and scenic state, one that unites space-age new with antebellum old.
