Description - American Places by William Zinsser
Setting out in the spring of 1990 'to look for America', when patriotic travel was suddenly back in fashion, William Zinsser made first-time pilgrimages to some of America's most cherished and visited historic sites: Mount Rushmore, Rockefeller Center, Yellowstone National Park, Pearl Harbor, even the "corny and obvious" Niagara Falls. At these and his other iconic destinations, Zinsser unlearned cliched assumptions and rediscovered fundamental truths about America. Originally published in 1992, AMERICAN PLACES and the ideals that Zinsser discovers these places represent will never go out of fashion.
