From the studio of Lowell Davis comes the enchanting story of Big Jack, Goldie, and the other residents of a real farm in southwest Missouri. Sprinkled with bits of farm lore and humor, the story of Big Jack and Goldie’s romance, courtship, and marriage preserves the values of a simpler time — a way of life that many of us remember and long for. But Big Jack & Goldie is more than just a farm tale. It’s a full-color collection of artwork by one of the world’s most famous rural and collectables artists, Lowell Davis. For nearly two decades his reputation as a sculptor and painter has earned him numerous accolades – especially for his works of chickens. And his art, characters,setting, and story all create a magical world of yesterday,much like Davis’s own self-created world of his 1930’s-era farm in the Ozarks.
