Description


Amazing Alabama: A Coloring Book Journey Through Alabama's 67 Counties is a delightful, one-of-a-kind coloring book whose publication coincides with two significant bicentennial celebrations: the 2017 anniversary of Alabama becoming a territory and the 2019 anniversary of Alabama becoming a state. It is designed to engage youngsters and adult coloring book enthusiasts in learning about the unique character of our nation's 22nd state.

Every county in Alabama is featured in Amazing Alabama with an appealing line drawing of its iconic and lesser-known sites--historical, geographical, topographical, industrial and commercial, and more. Companion text identifies and provides context for the pictured elements. The book provides a comprehensive educational snapshot of all that is special about the state.

Author/illustrator Laura Murray was inspired to create Amazing Alabama, her first coloring book, after moving to Alabama with her husband from Georgia. Together, they made many road trips, which introduced her to the state's history, its scenic highways and byways, its commercial centers and rustic small towns. Her coloring book showcases some of her favorite discoveries--the historic U.S. Post Office in Etowah County, Hatchet Creek in Coosa County, the pitcher plant bog in Chilton County, and much more.

When not busy with her illustration work, Laura enjoys spending time with her husband, three children, and two pets at her home in Auburn, Alabama.
