Thank you, to Mike Grandmaison and True Blue Spirit magazine, for the gorgeous coffee table book I recently won in the on-line subscriber draw of Prairie and Beyond. I also want to thank the publisher, Turnstone Press, for their contribution of the book. In addition to my gratitude, I am sending the following review so that your readers and his fans can know more about the book, because I was so impressed by it. The photos truly blur the distinction between photography and art, and the book touched me emotionally in surprising and delightful ways.

A sincere "Thank you" to all who attended the opening of my new exhibition 'Prairie and Beyond'. We had a wonderful evening. I know that many of you were also very busy that evening and could not attend. It was however very busy and we stayed open an extra hour. As you can see from the attached photo, my grandson was a 'hit', making an 'impromptu' presentation of one of my books, although not the latest one!
