Edwin Tunis was one the finest illustrators to ever work on children's books. Tunis was fascinated by American material culture. In his many books, Tunis showed his readers how things were made in the years before the industrial revolution. "Shaw's Fortune" is filled with ingenious illustrations showing such ordinary things as how tobacco was pressed into wooden barrels and how corn was ground in water mills. Edwin Tunis books are a pleasure for both parent and child. After you have read one, you will easily find yourself trying to collect all of his work. Highly recommended.
