Dahlov
Beautifully done update that blends art and the story of how Dahlov and her family settled in Maine. Younger readers, teachers and parents will all enjoy the art, bits of personal history and how the artist’s career was worked around the demands of a relatively primitive life on a coastal Maine farm. Pat Davidson Reef has done the people of Maine (and the world) a great service in detailing the story of an amazing Maine artist. This is a book well worth having in both school and public libraries and is very timely given the artist’s passing so recently.
