WHAT IS AN AMERICAN? Some say he is ugly; some say he is soft (we did). But only fools say he is timid or cowardly. The U.S. heritage is one of boldness, as the distinguished biographer and historian, Catherine Drinker Bowen, states in a brilliant essay that opens an exciting reappraisal of the American spirit. In subsequent pages the bold American is shown—in words, paintings and photographs—in his many habitats: the lofty peaks, the ocean depths, the distant plains. But whether high, low or far away, he still displays the nonconformist audacity that won the first—and last—frontiers.
