ABSTRACT
This article presents information about the book "God's Country and Mine," by Jacques Barzun. The title of Barzun's book troubles the author a little; no country, is God's country except the Kingdom of Heaven, the Republic of Love, the Great Good Place, or as writer Thomas More chose to call it No-Place. Barzun recalls in his book Goethe's cry, "America, you have the better part!" might also have reminded one of the poet's attempt to disentangle the legend from the fact. The emphasis of his book is set by the deliberate rosy banality of his title.
