Contents: Before there was America --
Before I knew that there was America --
I found an endless land --
Before there was an America --
We called ourselves Bostonians --
We raised up factories and farms, great houses and small --
We were willing to die to forge our dream --
Like clumsy children we fell --
We moved on stubbornly --
We were machines belching smoke --
We were the flat gold plains of Kansas --
We are America --
And from the tensions --
To each child a freedom dream.
Responsibility: Walter Dean Myers, Christopher Myers.

Examines the events and people that have shaped America, providing portraits of figures such as Chief Tecumseh, President Abraham Lincoln, and musician Jimi Hendrix, and featuring lyrical, free-verse poetic text.
