Blackfeet John L. "Cutapuis" Clarke and the Silent Call of Glacier National Park: America's Wood Sculptor
By Larry Len Peterson. Hardcover, 432 pages.
Raised at the edge of what would become Glacier National Park on the Blackfeet Indian Reservation and robbed of his hearing by scarlet fever at age two, John L. Clarke overcame many hardships to become a celebrated and widely collected artist. He rose to fame by applying his passions for the Glacier country, its wildlife, and Native Americans to the arts of wood carving, sculpture, sketching, and painting.
Author Larry Len Peterson accompanies the tale of this Blackfeet icon with photographs, printed materials, full-color images of his artworks, and images of contextual works from other famed artists of the time to provide a unique view of the artist's historic and cultural milieu: a view at once panoramic and intimate.
