Roger Roth, the illustrator of The American Story

No, that's not an illustration of Roger, it's Henry Thoreau, who was thrown into jail for failure to pay taxes. Why? It was his national poll tax he didn't pay -- he refused to pay taxes to a government that tolerated slavery. A fine example of civil protest.
Anyway, the work that Roger has done on this book is simply staggering. It dominated his life for about three years, I believe. Now that it's done he can get back to other projects.

I got word yesterday that The American Story will be featured in USA Today next week in a back-to-school feature. Circulation of over 2 million. That is a Good Thing. Best Blogger Tips
