Description Abrams' colorful series of useful, charming books celebrates the essence of each of the 50 United States. Each delightful book pictures and describes what is exceptional about a state -- its natural wonders, historical and cultural milestones, and industrial innovations -- and profiles the explorers, artists, writers, and personalities who shaped each state's distinctive heritage. Illustrated with fine and folk art, architecture, maps, memorabilia, and photographs of people and places, every book presents: -- Official state symbols -- Native American arts -- Musical traditions -- Roadside attractions -- Indigenous recipes -- Perennial calendar of statewide events -- List of museums and historical societies -- List of important tourist destinations Ohio is the quintessential American state: not strictly farm or industrial, small-town or urban, but equally all of these. Golfers flock to the state's 612 public and resort courses, and all enjoy the scenic Lake Erie shore, the Soap Box Derby, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and the Glasshouse Works Greenhouses, where the world's most exotic plants are cultivated. Here is a rousing tribute to the Buckeye state -- home to eight presidents and a host of important Americans from the Wright Brothers, James Thurber, Toni Morrison, and John Glenn to Superman, raised as Clark Kent on an Ohio farm. - Source: Google Books
