"Quilt of States"

Written by Adrienne Yorinks and 50 state librarians

Author Yorinks and 50 librarians across the United States have literally stitched together an exquisite, exceptional creation. The book begins with a historical introduction. After briefly chronicling the arrival of the first Europeans up to the creation of the US Constitution, this is the story of the 50 states as they are today. Every state has had its own unique path to statehood. Each state is given its own double-page spread, beginning with the first state (Delaware) and ending with the Aloha state (Hawaii). Each spread features a colorful, illustrative quilt piece created by Ms. Yorinks, as well as a brief state history written by a librarian from that particular state.
