Format: Hardcover
This is a lovely book, with lots of pictures and pages of information on the quilt makers. I found myself flipping back and forth through the book to look at all the quilts made by each person. It portrays very interesting quilts in varying conditions. A great book,excellent reading and wonderful pictures.

This is a very nice reading book, very well written, and great pictures. If you are into the history of quilts, and reading about the hardships of travel to the west years ago, this is the book to read. Very interesting.

Though I have yet to read "Going West", the photography is lovely. The quilts made in the west and south at this time were vividly scrappy, or lovingly composed. The book captures this feeling. These were made by people with time and maybe not a lot of resources. So what do you get under these circumstances? Imaginative and free color combinations and rememberance quilts made and given. That's why I like this book. It documents quilts made before quilt books were published.

I am a docent at the gold discovery park here in Calif. and children's books give me enough detail to tell a short story about a subject or peerson....and my time is sometimes limited for extensive research.
Children's books are wonderful to share with the children I come in contact with.
