Written by Ferrol Sams
Illustrated by Jim Harrison
The rural American landscape is fading like old lumber on the side of a barn, victim of urban sprawl and modernization. But the visions of this landscape, of its color and smells, is vivid and alive in the pens and brushes of Ferrol Sams and Jim Harrison. Sams, a masterful storyteller and author of the classic "Run with the Horsemen," writes sixteen vignettes, each marked with power and grace, about America's changing countryside. If weathered wood, clear flowing creeks and fertile fields had voices, they would speak like Ferrol Sams. Harrison demonstrates an unerring eye and unmatched style in sixty full-color paintings. The quality of his work, archival yet artistic, reduces the magnitude of our common loss. Words and images in perfect harmony, pressuring a passing part of the American landscape.
