As he does so, he embarks on an adventure of learning: about light and shadow, the way color changes through the day, and how looking at nature leads to a new understanding of himself and the world. This illuminated story is set in Americas first wilderness, the Kaaterskill Clove in Upstate New York, made famous by the Hudson River School of paintersmany of whose pictures are reflected in this book. Thomas Lockers In Blue Mountains is a personal, deeply moving testament to the power of beauty and art to nurture our childrens natural love of the world.
