ACROSS THE YELLOWSTONE
The Pencil of Vernon L. Drake

He was always sketching on any scrap of paper that was available. Vernon Drake drew from the time he could hold a pencil. As his son, I learned about my father through his illustrations. This book contains a collection of his drawings made on envelopes, sketchbooks, recycled paper, and church bulletins. These are not the best examples of his art, as he painted in watercolor and oils, but this collection tells his story. The journey from a poor dry land farm boy to a successful architect is reflected in the lines laid down over a lifetime.
