American artist N.C. Wyeth (1882-1945) was one of the most famous illustrators of his time, opening up the world of literature to all age groups, from Treasure Island to Robin Hood to The Last of the Mohicans.  He also created individual art works, often of the Pennsylvania countryside near his home and the coast of Maine where he spent summers with his family.
