The six essays featured in this book are winners of the "Land of Diversity" Essay Contest sponsored by the United States Postal Service® in 2005. Essays were to be written about individuals' family history in America, and how America, as the land of opportunity and diversity, helped them or their family realize the American dream. The Postal Service™ is proud of its role in portraying the American experience through stamps, and it encourages you to discover your own family heritage.
Use the worksheets to collect information and jot down notes about your family. On the last two pages, you can show and tell your family story. Stamps tell stories too, and stamp collecting is a great way to learn about history, sports, famous people, arts, and much more. You can learn more about stamp collecting--and the stories that stamps help to tell--at, or by calling 800-Stamp-24 (800-782-6724).
