With her mother dead of the plague, and her beloved brother newly married, Cornelia must manage her father's household, though he teeters on the brink of madness. She knows that among Amsterdam's elite circles, people are gossiping about her father's fading artistic genius--and about her, too. Yet there are two young men who seem unfazed by the slander- and very much intrigued by Cornelia. Set within the vibrant community of the 17th century Dutch Masters, I Am Rembrandt's Daughter is a moving coming of age story filled with family drama and a love triangle that would make Jane Austen proud.

Despite the tremendous number of studies produced annually in the field of Dutch art over the last 30 years or so, and the strong contemporary market for works by Dutch masters of the period as well as the public's ongoing fascination with some of its most beloved painters, until now there has been no comprehensive study assessing the state of research in the field. As the first study of its kind, this book is a useful resource for scholars and advanced students of seventeenth-century Dutch art, and also serves as a springboard for further research. Its 19 chapters, divided into three sections and written by a team of internationally renowned art historians, address a wide variety of topics, ranging from those that might be considered "traditional" to others that have only drawn scholarly attention comparatively recently.

A wind comes blowing, bringing another new day with each breaking dawn. Another day of toil, and oftentimes tribulation, mixed with affection for the land upon which he lives and works, the cowhand's existence is a bond between nature and the folks he has come to know and respect. His very existence is the epitome of a freedom that most folks will never know, but merely dream of. These are the heart-rending tales of life in southeastern Wyoming, living and working with ranchers and ranch hands, cowboys and cowpokes, and the occasional suburbanite in search of the real west. The edge of civilization rises on a near horizon and with its arrival ushers the end of a western heritage and the cowboy culture that few outsiders will ever comprehend. Written with truthfulness and candor, the author weaves a tapestry of stories and personal experiences, forever mindful of the fabric of life that holds this vanishing and fragile rural society together. Provocative, this is a perspective unlike any other ever presented. Anguish . . . coupled with brutal honesty and compassion for the working ranch hand in the American west, this is a brotherhood of understanding.
