Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "Sturm's prose is as elegantly understated as his line work. And every now and then he throws the heater: 'They've been waiting for their Messiah a thousand years,' says one opponent. 'So they know how to wait on a curveball.' A."Entertainment Weekly "Luminous . . . The revival, as Sturm gleaned through careful research, offered an oasis of companionship, entertainment and brief salvation from the land itself. One can see how Americans . . . would have yearned for a message that this dangerous, lonely place was actually part of some divine plan."The New York Times Book Review "Employing thick lines, minimal detail and simple prose storytelling, Sturm gracefully summons the seedy, often dangerous baseball world of the 1920s."The Washington Post.

Focusing on less sensational times in U.S. history (non-war and pre-Depression) James Sturm's America draws a portrait of the people and their dreams that make up this country. Comprised of three chapters--"The Revival," "Hundreds of Feet Below Daylight," and "The Golem's Mighty Swing"--the stories grow as the country grows: from pioneers searching for a place to call home to ghost towns gutted by greed and racism to the distractions and fantasies of popular entertainment.
James Sturm is the author of several award-winning graphic novels for children and adults, including Market Day, The Golem's Mighty Swing and Satchel Paige: Striking Out Jim Crow. He is also the founder of the Center for Cartoon Studies and the National Association for Comics Art Educators. He created Adventures in Cartooning with collaborators Alexis Frederic-Frost and Andrew Arnold. Sturm, his wife, and two daughters live in White River Junction, Vermont.
