In July 1861, troops fighting in the newly begun Civil War arrived on the McLeans' front lawn in Manassas, Virginia. The peaceful countryside where Lula often spent time playing with her favorite rag doll became a campsite full of cannon and trenches and tents. Wilmer McLean decided to relocate his family to a tiny village called Appomattox Court House, away from the war and the troops. But a few years later, on April 9, 1865, as Lula played with her rag doll, two visitors in tall boots made their way into her house. Lula and her doll were about to become part of American history.

3 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 480 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As a refugee during the partition of India in 1947, Nek Chand Saini was resettled in the city of Chandigarh with nothing but the stories he carried in his heart from his homeland. Dismayed at the modern new city he now lived in, he began collecting broken glass, cracked water pots, and discarded construction materials. In a section of wilderness he cleared himself, Nek Chand built the Rock Garden, full of curving paths, intricate mosaics, and hundreds of sculptures of people and animals, which eventually grew to a thirteen-acre wonderland. It was his tribute to the village of his youth, a land full of hidden stories. Barb Rosenstock introduces readers to an incredible outsider artist's vast, stunning creation, and Claire A. Nivola's illustrations bring to life the natural beauty of India and the surreal and marvelous world Nek Chand coaxed from the wild landscape. -- From dust jacket
