Synopsis: Each biography in this series portrays a famous American of the 18th, 19th or early 20th century who has made a significant impact on American history. Great for reports, the subjects of these biographies are frequently mentioned in social studies and English classes. Titles contain fact boxes, maps, a chronology, chapter notes, a glossary, a further reading list, Internet addresses, and an index.Nancy Plain examines the life of America's most famous frontier artist. In image after image, Frederic Remington preserved the past for all Americans to enjoy. Throughout his career, Remington created a visual testimony of the frontier years, producing twenty-two sculptures and nearly three thousand drawings and paintings. His works depict an untamed American West, where cavalry and American Indians fought to the death and where cowboys struggled with stampeding cattle on the open range.
From Booklist: Reviewed with Pat McCarthy's Henry David Thoreau.
Gr. 6-8. Each of these serviceable studies in the Historical American Biographies series imparts a relatively detailed overview of its subject's life, works, distinctive outlook, and character. Of the two, Thoreau makes drier reading, as McCarthy is given to name-dropping and extraneous details. He does, however, include a discussion of Thoreau's enduring influence, along with brief passages that capture the flavor of his writing, and refreshingly frank descriptions of him by contemporaries. Like Thoreau, Remington is presented as a maverick with a yen to wander, who died young and at the height of his creative powers. But unlike Thoreau, he was an outgoing, robust sort, who achieved almost immediate fame as soon as he turned to art full-time. Both books are sturdily supported by endnotes, plus lists of print and Web resources, but their black-and-white illustrations of old photos and prints are poor in quality, and Remington mentions many works that are not illustrated at all. Despite the weak visuals, both biographies do a good job of illuminating key figures in our cultural history. John Peters
