Another great little 8x6 hardcover book has rolled off the press. These vintage prairie images were selected to show some of the changes in both the country and urban landscapes. The book is dedicated to the many friends and family who invited Fritz to their beautiful corner of the prairie and encouraged him to sketch or paint. Not that he ever needed much encouraging - his entire life story is told through his thousands of works, from childhood onward.

 On this 75th anniversary of artist Fritz Stehwien's successful escape from a post 2nd World War prison camp, the story is published in this book. High resolution images of sketches and drawings are included, as well as a map of places around Europe and Russia where these were created.
