By Arno Heller

Und doch schlägt hier das historische und kulturelle Herz der country. Nirgendwo wird das europäische Vorurteil eines geschichtslosen Amerika eindrucksvoller widerlegt als hier. Jeder Ort pflegt selbstbewusst mit Museen, Gedenkstätten und Denkmälern seine Geschichte und kulturellen Hervorbringungen. Dabei geht es nicht nur um die Weitergabe von Wissen und Traditionen, sondern immer auch um die Suche nach nationaler Identität.
Arno Heller erzählt die Geschichte der amerikanischen Selbst(er)findung auf überaus originelle Weise - bewusst nicht in shape einer historischen Übersicht, sondern anhand anschaulicher, spannender und auch kritisch hinterfragender Erkundungen von acht zentralen Gedächtnisorten der united states. In Wort und Bild wirft er einen neuen Blick auf die Keimzelle des amerikanischen Traums, auf Natur und Kultur, Literatur und Kunst, Geschichtliches und Kurioses, culture und Moderne.
