Product Overview

N. C. Wyeth's illustrations for Treasure Island, Kidnapped, The Last of the Mohicans, The Yearling, and many other books are etched into the collective memory of generations of readers. He was hailed as the greatest American illustrator of his day. Yet he judged himself a failure, believing that illustration was of no importance. Despite the darkness of his temperament, he was a towering figure of gargantuan appetites and physical power.

David Michaelis's biography tells the story of Wyeth's family through four generations. It is a family saga that begins and ends with the accidental deaths of small boys; a gothic tale that shows how N.C. endangered himself and his children by concealing part of the family legacy -- depression, suicide, incest. The artist himself is brought alive in this fully realized portrait of this huge-spirited, deeply complicated man, his family, and an America that was quickly vanishing.
