Places of the heart...

I have spent hours of enjoyment with this book....losing myself in faces and places unknown to me, yet at the same time hauntingly familiar. Rick Smolan has captured America at the very time when so many of us feel we are losing a connection to the vitality and promise of our country. But in every page and every essay, there are precious reminders of where our strength for the future lies...in America's people and in our homes an communities. Thank you, Rick Smolan.....

The Melting Pot Held Proud

I have followed Rick Smolan's books for many years. This book touched me as few others have done. My Czech wife often seems to miss the diversity of the true America. I think all of us that have suffered these past 8 years where we might not have felt proud of our country can find something to feel proud of in this book. Here one can see so clearly and beautifully the diversity, the imagination, the love of family and friends that we who have grown up in America hold to be the true America. I shared this book with my wife who I think was quite surprised to see how many America's there are and to see what the true fabric of our society looks like beyond the slick magazines and endless TV glitz. This is a book that you can give to someone who wants to see and better understand what America is truly about.

America the beautiful

I love the warmth of this book. I travel the world and am disturbed by the misconceptions many foreigners have of us here at home. (I can't say I blame them with the present administration having devastated our reputation and the relentless negative news reports.) I would love to share this book with everyone abroad. It paints honest, touching, personal, everyman images of true Americans in all sorts of everyday activities in their homes. Whether as a gift to people abroad or enjoyed with friends and family, this beautiful book presents who we are as everyday people. Honest, simple, good, loving Americans. Thanks to Rick and Jennifer.

A Beautiful Book

This is a beautiful book of images showing what is diverse and what is the same about the way we live. Each time I look through it, I see something new. The photographs and captions convey a richness of these people and their lives. It makes me wish that I could be in those places and meet those people.

Another fantastic gift idea!

After giving the original America 24-7 as gifts to several friends and family, I've been delighted and excited to pick up each subsequent book! Just got the newest -- America at Home and am planning several gift covers already. They really are unique and fabulous gifts especially with digital pictures so easily obtainable. I use them a lot as new baby gifts, and they are fun and simple to create. Love the books, and this one just SMACKS of AMERICA! I highly recommend it!
