"Wisdom of the West Riding Trails and Telling Tales" by Tom Browning

ISBN: 9780736950664
Hardcover $14.99
About the book: This invitation to the insights and inspiration of the old West features artist Tom Browning’s stunning paintings of fearless cowboys, noble horses, and nature’s vast beauty. Readers are drawn into an era when a person’s good reputation garnered trust, a handshake sealed a deal, and the cowboy spirit lived large. Filled with the wisdom of the West—shared along the dusty trails and by glowing campfires—this beautiful gift book warms the soul and fuels the call to adventure. It’s a timeless gift to bless those who feel a kinship with those who rode west and who wish they could have answered that call themselves.

Review:  Two of my favorite things, art and quotes.  This book has some of the best I have seen.  One of my favorite quotes is by Leigh Richmond....
"There is a time to be born, and a time to die, says Solomon, and it is the memento of a truly wise man; but there is an interval between these two times of infinite importance."
The illustrations in this book are gorgeous! Each page is a work of art. I love the embellishments on the corners, around the pictures, and highlighting the quotes. I could see an art project on designing a page layout. The "wanted" poster at the beginning would make a great class project. This book would be excellent to teach character traits and have a cowboy theme in your classroom. (reviewed M.Free, Art Instructor)
