LIFE A Story of America in 100 Photographs
A great photograph tells not one story, but many. LIFE A Story of America in 100 Photographs reveals thousands of stories about our country, through the eyes of our greatest photographers. With pictures from the dawn of photography, around 1850, to the 21st century, this Special Edition celebrates life in the United States decade by decade.
The Beatles land in America. A POW returns home. Dancers twirl. A girl goes to school in Arkansas. A chief waters his horse at Wounded Knee. A car travels Route 66, a bird sits on the sunlit water, an airplane soars. Brief but illuminating text from the experts at LIFE adds to the narrative, placing each photo in historical context. With moments both intimate and immense, this remarkable keepsake reveals the heart and soul of America.
