one word portrait + american portraits giveaway!

Botswanan children

Botswanan children

Quick: tell me the one word that popped in your head when you saw this portrait of Botswanan children outside the Okavango Delta in the comments below and you could win American Portraits: 100 Countries .

I will randomly choose one commenter to win photographer Michael Clinton's new coffee table book, American Portraits: 100 Countries .  Michael Clinton is the president, marketing director, and publishing director of Hearst Magazines (including O and the Food Network magazine), and, in his spare time (!), travels and photographs, which has led to four photography books.  I love the idea behind the American Portraits book: expressing the often-underappreciated diversity of the United States via portrait photography.  Just look at his beautiful shots of our varied America:
