Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 096437210X, Hardcover)

Pennsylvania Folk Art of Samuel L Plank artfully illustrates & introduces to the reader a little known individual who, through the normal course of his life, left a legacy of artifacts for us to conserve. The artwork he produced has reached a level of importance that recognizes the need for documentation & study. This Amish man`s accomplishments & the time period he worked reflects on a culture we can observe to better understand both his & our own heritage. The obscurity of the man, Samuel Plank, is uncloaked in fresh & entertaining first person narrative. The "FAMILY RECORD" compiled by D.E. Plank in 1908 & illustrated in its entirety is a valuable resource for genealogy study. Documented folk art objects, perhaps, stir the emotions & create the greatest interest. These documented objects by Plank can share the status of Lehn, Weber, and Bucher, also well recognized & appreciated Pennsylvanian German Folk Artist.
