Liberty should shine here on this island, Bartholdi decided, where she can welcome all to America.

The story behind Liberty's construction and the visionaries who made it happen Liberty Rising

The Statue of Liberty stands as a powerful symbol of freedom to all. But what is her story? How did she come to be? From conception to construction, each element of the Statue of Liberty has a fascinating story of its own: a face bearing the likeness of the creator's mother; a hand and a torch traveling alone to America; seventy train cars packed with pieces.

This inspiring and beautifully illustrated picture book celebrates the visionaries behind the statue and the process by which they carried out the design and building of one of the world's most important monuments.
