Description
Mix Red Barber, the White House, and a touch of the blues, and you have America A To Z, a colorful portrait of our nation. Like many a Norman Rockwell painting, it captures what is familiar and what is best about America. Hot dogs and hot rods. Big bands and baseball. Oreos and the Oregon Trail.
Remember the Alamo? How about the Automat...the Merrimac...Jack Kerouac? This book has the dish on dishwashers, the skinny on dieting, and the scoop on ice cream. It's got the word on Walter Winchell and Walt Whitman, all the info on RFD, UFOs, VCRs, and M&Ms.
Here's a parade of fun facts, famous faces, and historic milestones that leads straight down memory lane. Whether you grew up with soda fountains or Silly Putty, Milton Berle or the Brady Bunch, it's a nostalgic trip you'll want to take again and again.
