    March 2012: The boys bought me a copy for my birthday. It's even better on a re-read. It's not truly an autobiography, although it is mostly autobiographical information. More like very well written ramblings of a fine artist who loved skies, trees & Colonial times. Sloane had a wide range of interests & a very quick mind. When he wanted to research a subject, he wrote a book about it.

Sloane had a wide range of interests & a very quick mind. When he wanted to research a subject, he wrote a book about it. No, most weren't masterpieces, but they were good & speak directly to the reader, leading us into an understanding of the subject with a spontaneity & casual approach that really works for me. He rubbed elbows with a lot of famous people over the years. Amelia Earhart & many others are mentioned. He apparently hung around with the flying crowd & painted many of their planes. He once did a sketch with a chocolate bar that was framed. Robert Redford bought one of his painting. All kinds of fun stuff. While I really enjoyed going through an excellent selection of his paintings & sketches, I found that I'm not quite as fond of his paintings as I used to be. They're pretty good, if you're into realistic land & sky scapes, which I am. Still, it's his sketches in books like A Reverence for Wood or American Barns and Covered Bridges that I really like. He captures the soul of Colonial construction. 2003: He was a very good artist & this chronicles his work in a good overview. Good enough that someone swiped my copy.

    Alison, Central patron, June 2016, 5 stars: Can't beat an Eric Sloane book for anyone interested in early American life or illustration techniques. This book explores more of his art composition and creation philosophy.
