Washington, D.C.: Our Nation's Capitol from A-Z
de Alan Schroeder
No hi ha cap discussió a Converses sobre aquesta obra.
This A-B-C book is a fun history book that presents little known facts and trivia (for example, George Washington was so modest, he called Washington, D.C. the "Federal City), and pop culture (Darth Vader featured among the gargoyles decorating the National Cathedral). Starting with the cover, the book is filled with humorous and whimsical illustrations depicting various locations around the capital city. The end pages provide a useful map to locate the sites mentioned in the book. ( )
"Humorous cartoons accompany this off-beat guide to the District of Columbia. It is filled with intriguing details about important landmarks and the people who have come to the capital to run the nation's business, celebrate, protest, live in the thick of it all or just visit. From the aluminum tip of the towering Washington monument to the marble bathtubs in the Capital building's basement, this book offers a top to bottom look at Washington D.C. and its eclectic history. The end papers feature a map of the District."--Publisher's description.
