Описание: With full color illustrations with a retro feel, M. Sasek captures the adventurous spirit of this travel guide to one of America`s most visited cities, for readers ages 8 to 80! Sample text: This is Washington, D.C., the capital of the United States of America. Situated on the Potomac River, it is a city of parks whose broad avenues, reminiscent of Paris, are lined with severe white porticoes of classic Roman dignity. Washington`s first and foremost resident is Uncle Sam. It is the seat of the U.S. Federal Government. The Congress meets here, the President lives here, the Supreme Court sits here, foreign ambassadors reside here. Most business in Washington is Government business and the Government is everybody`s business. Nearly half of the one million Washingtonians work for the Government full time, and the other half talk about most of the time.
