About this title

Synopsis:

After unsuccessful attempts at many careers, H. O. "Cowboy" Kelly had little to show except a rich store of memories of an America fast disappearing then and gone today. He translated those memories into paintings of the pleasures and toil of a rural society. The details of Kelly's life are in sharp contrast with his nostalgic paintings, but an irrepressible optimism and humor highlight both the paintings and William Johnson's chronicle of Kelly's life. The result is a charming presentation of nineteenth-century romantic who by accident of fate made himself a niche as artist in twentieth-century America.

About the Author:

The late William Weber Johnson was professor emeritus of journalism at the University of California, Los Angeles, and a former bureau chief for Time-Life.

Tom Lea’s other books include both fiction (The Wonderful Country, The Primal Yoke, and The Hands of Cantú) and nonfiction (The King Ranch, A Picture Gallery, and In the Crucible of the Sun). He also served as a correspondent for Life magazine in the South Pacific during World War II. At the end of his life, he became friends with soon-to-be President George W. Bush, who used Lea’s sunrise side of the mountain image in his acceptance speech at the 2000 Republican National Convention.
