Description
"A friendly reminder of how America can be at its best." - Entertainment Weekly

If you had to name a statue, any statue, odds are good you'd mention the Statue of Liberty. Have you seen her?

She's in New York.

She's holding a torch.

And she's in mid-stride, moving forward.

But why?

In this fascinating, fun take on nonfiction, Dave Eggers and Shawn Harris investigate a seemingly small trait of America's most emblematic statue. What they find is about more than history, more than art. What they find in the Statue of Liberty's right foot is the powerful message of acceptance that is essential to an entire country's creation. "I want to hold this book in one hand and a torch in the other and stand on an island someplace so everyone can see." --Lemony Snicket

"Eggers's crucial and timely re-examination makes Liberty an active participant in a debate that is more contentious than ever." - Publishers Weekly , starred review
