An Artist's Return to America's First Wilderness
Hardbound, dust jacketed
In Blue Mountains is about the love of nature and the importance of beauty. It tells the story of an artist who sets out to explore wilderness and discovers a new way of seeing. Bewildered at first by the profusion of nature, he gradually learns to see its wholeness and to trust his feelings. The story itself is a beautiful portrayal of nature, light and color. The juxtaposition of Locker’s luminous paintings with the artist’s experiences inspire a deep appreciation for the beauties of the world and for our human awareness in percieving them. A book for all ages, I recommend it especial for children 7 to 10 years old.
