"Some of these essays are powerful and poetic. Some seem to reflect a stunned condition on the part of the contributor. But all of them share a newborn or reawakened feeling about the country we live in...Some are personal narratives that explain and justify the patriotism of the writer. Some examine and praise the values that make the country great."

-- Hugh Downs, from the Introduction

What is the essence of America? In this fascinating new collection inspired by one of our most trusted and beloved commentators, 150 diverse Americans express in their own words what America means to them.

My America includes candid insights from such well-known personalities as Barbara Walters, former president George Bush, Dave Brubeck, Willard Scott, Helen Thomas, Donald Trump, Phyllis Diller, Mike Wallace, John Glenn, and Patricia Neal, as well as remarks by lesser-known citizens from all over the country. These frank and thought-provoking observations from Americans of every age, race, religion, and social position compellingly illustrate the American mosaic and offer a glimpse into the subconscious mind of this unique and wonderful nation. My America is a timely collection for anyone who wants to reflect on America's past or celebrate its future.
