Wilderness by Rockwell Kent

Rockwell Kent is an American artist and illustrator, well known for his paintings, book illustrations (Moby Dick), and bookplates.  What many people don’t know is that he was also an adventurer.  His first book, Wilderness is his account from 1918-19 of adventuring in the Alaskan frontier with his 9-year-old son.  Peppered with beautiful illustrations, this book helped support him on his New Hampshire homestead where he worked to complete a series of paintings from the Alaskan wilderness for exhibition in 1920 at Knoedler Galleries in New York
