Purple Mountain Majesties: The Story of Katharine Lee Bates & “America the Beautiful”
Barbara Younger (au); Stacey Schuett (il). In 1893, a young prof. of English at Wellesley took a train out west to teach summer school in Colorado Springs, CO. She was a scholar, but at heart she was a poet & idealist. The beauty & grandeur of the nation’s mountains, fertile prairies, shining seas forcefully moved her. She composed a poem, an expression of hope for America’s spiritual life, that has stirred generations ever since. Here is an engaging picture-book account of Katharine Lee Bates & the trip that gave rise to “America the Beautiful.” Written with grace & humor, the book captures the essence of this 19th-century woman of poetry, duty, & whimsy. The illus., glowing with color, bring readers close to canyon & sky, prairie & mountain, & to the fun Katharine had on her journey.
