The Star-Spangled Banner
Random House Children's Books, Feb 1, 1992 - Juvenile Fiction - 56 pages
To the words of the national anthem, Peter Spier has set some of his finest illustrations ever--each glowing with color and each a bit of Americana in itself. As in any Spier book, inspiration has been backed up by careful research and observations, so that every detail bears the mark of authenticity. The music is provided at the back of the book, including guitar chords, for those who like to sing or play. There are also historical notes and maps about the War of 1812 and how "The Star-Spangled Banner" came to be written, as well as a reproduction of Francis Scott Key's original manuscript.
