Born in England during the Industrial Revolution, painter Thomas Cole was fascinated by tales of the American countryside, and was ecstatic to move there in 1818. But everything changed for Cole when he was given a ticket for a boat trip up the Hudson River to see the wilderness of the Catskill Mountains. As recounted here for readers 5 to 8, the haunting beauty of the landscape sparked Cole's imagination and would inspire him to create dazzling paintings as part of the Hudson River School. In his watercolor, pencil, and ink illustrations, Hudson Talbott ably evokes the 19th century, and Cole's paintings appear throughout the book.
