One thing I forgot to do before returning this book to the library was to weigh it. My guess is that it could be the same weight as a coffee table. This book is huge!
And the first essay is The Taos Incident, by Walter Hopps. I had heard another version of this story from the unnamed person who accompanied Walter for this art rescue. Anyone who knew Walter also knew that he was a master storyteller. This was another perfect example. And since Walter and Dennis are both no longer with us, it will have to suffice.
