Read from the Book

From sea to shining sea, the United States of America is brimming with history, natural beauty, and iconic people and places.

In 1776, fifty-six men—including future presidents John Adams and Thomas Jefferson—signed the Declaration of Independence, thereby freeing the original 13 colonies from Britain’s rule. A year later, the Revolutionary War began, and on October 19, 1781, America won its independence when Britain surrendered. What began as 13 small colonies eventually grew to 50 states. The U.S.A. is now the third largest country in the world!

Follow along as we explore this great land—from coast to coast, mountains to plains, and fields to deserts. Along the way, you’ll learn how to draw some of America’s renowned people and historical places, as well as symbols and features that make each state unique.

About the Author

Starting with his grade school days, drawing dinosaurs and animals in notebook margins, Maury Aaseng has always been excited about drawing and art. After graduating with a BFA in graphic design from the University of Minnesota-Duluth, he moved to San Diego to begin an illustration career. His freelance work over the last eight years has spanned a variety of subject matter and illustration styles. The range of his work has included anatomical illustration and cartoons for medical textbooks, informative illustrations for young adult nonfiction, illustrated guides for out-patient care, custom watercolor work for independent authors, and logo design and creation. The variety has continued to fuel the creative spark that makes illustration work rewarding for him. In 2010, his artwork was featured in the Upstream People Gallery 7th Annual Color: Bold/Subtle Juried Online International Exhibition.
