15 of 16 people found the following review helpful By Shalom Freedman HALL OF FAME on February 6, 2005
Format: Hardcover
This is a beautiful about a true American original. William C. Ketchum Jr. tells the story of Grandma Moses life and art. The book itself has reproductions which seem to shine and smile off the page at the reader. Bright and clear .The rural world of Grafton upstate New York is presented in the famous Grandma Moses 'primitive style'. As someone who grew up in this territory the landscape is pleasantly familiar. And certain scenes especially the ones in which snow seems to give a purity and brightness to all give such a deeply pleasant and relaxing field.

This book is simply a pleasure.

This is a very beautiful and well-made book. The larger size made it easy to use in the classroom. It was informative and beautifully put together. A wonderful coffee table book, as well!
