America is a country of action, and I sought to represent this through the use of verbs by the characters. “Ponderosa Pines reaching up to the sky” is one example. Rather than stating “The Ponderosa Pines are tall.” In Hollywood, “actors stroll on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.” Rather than “Hollywood is full of actors.”
Part of the American belief system is that anyone can achieve success through hard work and action. In America, action imbues people with a sense of power and optimism. In ”The Home Run that Tours America” the characters illustrate this through their use of verbs.
