Now in audiobook, the bestselling collection of patriotic poems, song lyrics, historical documents, speeches and photographs, edited by and with an introduction by Caroline Kennedy.

The America you will meet in the pages of A PATRIOT'S HANDBOOK is one that derives its strength from its diversity, and from the way our variety allows us constantly to reinvent ourselves. We are a country of poets, from Henry Wadsworth Longfellow to Langston Hughes; we are a country of songwriters, from Irving Berlin to Woody Guthrie. We are a country of "The Pledge of Allegiance," but also of "The Times They Are A-Changin.'" The poems, songs, speeches, letters, and historical documents Caroline has chosen for this remarkable collection remind us of the foundations on which America was built. But they also ask us to examine what it truly means to be a "patriot," even if our assumptions are challenged along the way. Because it is only by doing so that America can "truly be our own." A PATRIOT'S HANDBOOK is a book that every family should own, a valuable resource that can be shared for years to come.
