An alternative history, offering alternative myths, of the founding of the United States of America. Where religion must be erased and where industry is a given, magic steps in with its hoaxes and promises. In A Magic Book, Sasha Steensen deftly inscribes, using treatise, factoid, rhyme, and timeline, the choices we have made, culturally, against a belief in invisibility: What we have not seen, must not be, "never harm nor spell nor charm."
