It tells the story of Americas struggles to realize in practice the high ideals we all believe in.The book chronicles Americas struggles to become a more perfect union. This historical mosaic reveals a country much different from the one touted daily in the halls of Congress and on talk radio. It explores conflicts which, like malaria, seem to surface throughout Americas history: the original tension between God and gold in European colonization- the war between individual property rights (ownership of land, wealth, slaves, workers, and natural resources) and individual human rights- the struggle between excesses of individual liberty and excesses of governmental power- the hostility between excluded newcomers and those already established.The stories of a variety of heroes are presented as models of clear vision and decent behavior.

Ben Franklin, William Penn, Franklin Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln are among the many heroes whose words and deeds are guides to our shared public life.The poem views our history as slowly evolving towards an acceptance of restraint and social inclusion. In a moving final Coda, it holds out hope that America will indeed become a Sweet Land of Decency in the 21st century.
