Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Doris "Doe" Burn (b. April 24, 1923, Portland, Oregon) is a children's book author and illustrator. She lives in Bellingham, Washington. Burn was mainly active as an author and illustrator between 1965 and 1971. Her distinctive style consists of absorbingly detailed line drawings, often of children matter-of-factly doing extraordinary things. She is best-known for the classic story, Andrew Henry's Meadow, inspired by her son Mark. It was published in 1965 while she was living and working on Waldron Island in the San Juan Islands archipelago. According to the blurb accompanying that book, her studio was "a small cabin where she spends the day at work after chopping enough wood to keep the fire going through the day, hauling two buckets of water from the pump for washing brushes and pens and brewing 'a perpetual pot of tea'." In 1965 Waldron Island was without electricity, telephone service, running water or merchants. All of her goods and supplies were brought by boat from the mainland.show more
