Summary The wonderful world of Oz is a magical place-and has been for generations of Americans since L. Frank Baum penned his enduring classic in 1900. With the 1939 movie starring Judy Garland, Oz was forever woven into our culture. Over the course of the 20th century, Oz continued to capture the hearts of the American people-as well as people all over the world. This book documents that magical journey through beautiful photographs of the world's largest collection of Oz memorabilia.
