In this book, the character of the American people (to whom the book is dedicated) are shown with a heartfelt affection that is made more significant when you realize that Spier immigrated to the United States in his mid-twenties, in 1952. His Dutch roots give him a uniquely perceptive insight into American culture, and they make this patriotic tribute to our nation's founding especially meaningful.
This excellent book is unfortunately out of print, but is available in public libraries and on the used book market.
"We the People" is one of Mr.Spier's most historical and educational works, a definate classic, and I would encourage parents to seek his many other titles as well. "Noah's Ark", "People", "Bored Nothing to Do" etc.
Growing up in Shoreham, New York where Mr Spier resides, certainly was good fortune as I was able to be introduced to the works of this world class story teller and artist. Mr.Spier's works inspired me as a youngster and are books I will pass on to my own children. We could use more of such thoughtful and inspiring children's material. You cannot go wrong with any of Mr Spier's titles.
Very neat book.
