One of America's favorite folk artists, Eric Sloane started out as an itinerant sign painter—a profession that took him from New England to New Mexico and many places in between. Along the way, he did ink-on-white-paper sketches of passing scenes and landscapes. Many of them appear in this delightful collection of drawings, along with the artist's nostalgic, autobiographical commentary on the roads traveled and the sights seen.Here are delightful impressions of streams winding through snow-covered landscapes; old stone barns and farmhouses, covered bridges, farming tools and implements, spring houses, and trees—from sturdy sycamores to graceful aspens."The next thing to living one's life over is to make durable recollections of it," Sloane once remarked. Today, the pastoral landscapes, rustic homes, and traditional arts he encountered in his travels live on in these bittersweet glimpses of American life from a bygone era.
