After a second look I realize two stars is far too generous (even considering that I only paid one dollar for this book.)

This is just the worst type of patriotic dreck. Completely worthless!

After reading this I vomited red, white and blue for three days . . . unfortunately, like many Americans, I can't afford health insurance . . . so I'll have to just hope the condition is not serious.

This is a book of photographs taken by amateurs and professional all during one week in May in 2003. There are a lot of interestintgs photos and essays in this book. My favorite essay was by Barbara Kingslover. There are a lot of good photos and then there are thumbnail photos along the top of a lot of pages with other submitted images, but not the "winning" images. I liked a lot of the thumbnail images more than the enlarged ones. All, in all a nice read/look.

Interesting project but a little too gimmicky for me in the end. Photos are beautiful, however.
