A Better Life

Lots of great photos of a very interesting lady. More people should try to mimic her lifestyle. She seemed kind, compassionate, and loving, while at the same time was a rugged individualist. What a real American should be like. She was able to enjoy the simple things in life such as housekeeping and dishwashing. She was proud to be a housewife. I bet when the power lines went down she didn't start whining about government not doing enough. She considered it a privilege just to be alive, and savored the beauty all around her. This book will give you a better outlook on life.

A Fascinating Artist

This was an enchanting look into a life of an eccentric, albeit very endearing artist. What possessed Tasha Tudor to adopt the lifestyle and surroundings of a period in time gone these last hundred years? Why did she choose to channel the life of a countrywoman living in 1830? These are questions still unanswered after reading this book but on the plus side, Tasha's very special gifts and proclivities are beautifully photographed. The photographs alone are worth the book's price. Her drawings, gardens, dolls and other crafts are unique.

Tasha's drawings and book illustrations have always been beautiful and inspirational. I can remember falling in love with her illustration style when I first saw a Christmas card she had drawn. The children pictured were so like my own children yet somehow perfectly suited to the 19th century period she was drawing and she had captured the peace and joy of that season in time.

I enjoyed seeing her happy and content on her Vermont farm in the house constructed for her by her now grown son. Though now deceased, Tasha and her art will continue to inspire artists and writers and lovers of children's books for a long time.
