The authors of this book are all members of the Kansas Grassroots Art Association-the oldest organization in the U.S. to work towards preserving sites of what is often called primitive, or outsider art. With more than 150 photographs of the familiar (Garden of Eden, Lucas) and the unfamiliar, this book is dedicated to help us understand, appreciate and preserve this unique form of art that seems to bloom all over the Great Plains.
