Excerpt from the book jacket: "This beautiful volume presents the first published collection of the paintings of Paul Murray. Murray's interest in the simple lives of his subjects in this complex age is portrayed throughout the book. His desire is to preserve the heritage and traditions of our forebears. This is not merely a nostalgic journey, but a change to remember time-honoured values. Murray is a realist who allows us to relive the past through the subjects in his Ouellette and Appalachian Series. It is in these two isolated areas that Murray learned to capture on canvas the inner beauty and the essence of these people. Many of his subjects live their entire lives without what the modern world considers necessities, such as electricity and running water. Sixty-five plates with commentaries reveal the artist's appreciation of our heritage. As well, these commentaries act as a guide to the motivation behind the paintings."
