About this title


The American bicentennial celebration in 1976 prompted the creative Eloise Thomsen to make a very unique quilt illustrated with scenes from Nebraska. She didn't know at the time that eventually photographs of the quilt blocks would be combined with cowboy style poetry from Karen Thomas, Pam Ruppert, and others to become the book, "PATCHES AND POETRY". Eloise Thomsen was perhaps better known in her native Nebraska as a self-taught expert on the Orphan Trains that carried orphaned children from New York City and elsewhere to new homes throughout the U.S. in the late 1800's - what was essentially the beginning of what we now know as foster care. Thanks to her research she was able to reunite many former orphans with siblings they had been separated from, and gave many lectures on Orphan Train history. PATCHES AND POETRY shows the creative side of one of Nebraska's local heroines.
