About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for PAYING MOTHER : THE TRIBUTE BEAUTIFUL by McCarter, Margaret Hill.

Description:

Illustrations and Decorations by J.C. (Justin) Gruell, younger brother of Johnny Gruell, who created the famed Raggedy Ann and Andy books. 72 pages. Tall booklet, probably 4" x 8" Card covers with green and red scene of a be-shawled "Mother" with flowers in her hands, surrounded by a lot stem of what looks to be carnations. Decorated endpapers with poem by Strickland Gilliland. Lovely and still bright, with just a bit of corner and edgewear from the thick cover stock, on three sides trimmed a bit longer than the card stock beneath, to give the effect of beveled edges. It was just a commonplace tale of commonplace folks that I heard as I lay with my ear to the prairie grass-roots, warm with a chrism of warm spring sunshine. A simple tale it was, to which only that one who loves a mother, or the memory of mother, will care to listen. I caught from the prairie grasses rippling in the sunlight, and singing to me a slow, sweet, homey melody. That's all!. Bookseller Inventory #
