"Once there was an artist who loved to sit on a hillside, painting pictures of the pale blue mountains in the distance . . . ." In Blue Mountains is about the love of nature and the importance of beauty. It tells the story of an artist who sets out to explore wilderness and discovers a new way of seeing. Bewildered at first by the profusion of nature - there are so many leaves he could never paint them all! - he gradually learns to see its wholeness and to trust his feelings. As he does so, he embarks on an adventure of learning: about light and shadow, how color changes through the day, and how looking at nature leads to a new understanding of himself and the world. Set in America's first wilderness, the Kaaterskill Clove, made famous by the Hudson River School of painters - many of whose pictures are reflected in this book - Thomas Locker's "In Blue Mountains" is a personal, deeply moving testament to the power of beauty and art to nurture our children's natural love of the world.
