Publisher's Description

Mount Rushmore. Gettysburg. Manzanar. Plymouth Rock. In Palacio's American Places these sites, so closely linked to the collective and complex legacy we inherit as Americans, are paired with monumental images of what seems familiar and even invisible. Yet the unremarkable ordinariness of the field of tall grass is transformed when you become aware that these are the grasses now covering a site, once a home, in New Orleans' Ninth Ward, severely impacted by Hurricane Katrina. Originally from Colombia, Palacio brings an outsider's perspective to his keenly observed America, and we discover a landscape both expansive and contained, delimited and unbounded.

Imperfect copies have rubbed dust jackets with minor closed tears and corner bumps.
