Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 096774136X, Hardcover)

"The Unknown Rockwell: A Portrait Of Two American Families" is the personal memoirs of James "Buddy" Edgerton, Norman Rockwell's neighbor in West Arlington, Vermont, for 14 years, and a frequent Rockwell model, as well as best friend with the Rockwell sons. This book was written with the full support of the Norman Rockwell Family and the Norman Rockwell Family Agency, the only book written to date by a non-family member to accurately reflect the life that Norman Rockwell lived and captured in his art during the most prolific time of his career. Soon to be a major motion picture (Spring 2015), "The Unknown Rockwell" is authentic, moving, poignant, and provides intimate details of the amazing friendship between the Rockwell and Edgerton families. Beautifully written by co-authors James "Buddy" Edgerton and Nan O'Brien, it contains personal family photographs of the families, as well as modeling photos and the illustrations that resulted. "The Unknown Rockwell" is the authentic story of two families tied by life and friendship in rural Vermont in the 1930s and 1940s, and the man who America regards as the pre-eminent 20th Century American artist. The Foreword is written by the legendary Dick Clark.
