This book tells secrets. In America Revealed, LIFE's editors explain the subtleties of our country's history with stunning, often beautiful and constantly surprising photography. Places where the dinosaurs roamed and the first Americans walked are examined, as are sites of deep significance. Walden Pond. Jefferson's schoolhouse. A serene nook in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania--a nice place to find some summer shade--was once a den of horror, and then-and-now photographs tell the tale. "I treasure this book because its pictures present the generally invisible history of common folks, and of hidden aspects behind conventionally great events," writes Stephen Jay Gould in his Introduction, capturing perfectly this timeless book.
