Members of what Tom Brokaw has called “The Greatest Generation,” at the end of World War II they left jobs and family in Southwest Ohio to follow a dream

This memoir is a celebration of their new life, of the art communities in which it took place, and a tribute to the people who influenced them. It is the story of the development of an artist, indicative of a time of growth and change in an entire nation. 

The narrative is illustrated by reproductions of Elden’s work, more than 50 of them in color. The story traces Elden’s life-long interest in Oriental art, philosophy and religion, as well as his commitment to exploring new ways of artistic expression. At the same time it tells of the opportunities that opened up for Katherine to make her own contribution in their exciting new world of painters and writers.
