"There is nothing more American than Mom and apple pie. But how exactly have Americans viewed motherhood over the years? Take a stunning visual journey through American motherhood from the Civil War to today as portrayed in magazines, ads, cartoons, television, music, film, and more. This lavishly illustrated book goes decade by decade, covering everything from the origins of Mother's Day in the nineteenth century to the courage and sacrifice of wartime moms; from iconic '50s TV moms like June Cleaver and Lucille Ball to the Supermoms of the 1980s . . . to today's moms, who turn to social media to help their families' busy lives hang together. Also covered are innovative and pioneering moms, moms of the White House, and moms who created great works of art, music, and literature. These captivating images and messages paint a story of an evolving America--and of the fierce, adaptable American woman. Filled with inspirational quotes, fun facts, and famous moms, American Mom is an ideal gift for Mother's Day, baby showers, anniversaries, birthdays, and more"--Page 4 of cover.
