Ralph Whiting –
Out of the Rainbow captures the spirit and joy of growing up during a time when lessons learned did not all come out of a book. Exploring the great forests and streams of the north provide the backdrop for learning the greatest lessons in life, that we all depend on each other, learn from each other, and we should give thanks for the happiness we receive from others.
Judy Nugent –
Thurston captures all the magic and wonder of the natural world as seen through the eyes of a child. In our modern world where children play inside as if under house arrest, Thurston resurrects a time not so long ago when children’s pastimes included fishing, berry picking, and digging snow tunnels. Out of the Rainbow is a gentle reminder to us all of what we are losing when we fail to protect our wild places.
