The book is a first-hand view of Mose from the days when I chaperoned him and his wife to the Corcoran exhibit through his rise to national recognition in the folk art world. Folk art scholar Regenia Perry has contributed a preface on the significance and appeal of Tolliver's work. Lee Kogan, curator of The American Folk Art Museum in New York, has also written a wonderful introduction. I have included an essay along with stories and anecdotes from my close friendship with Mose dating back to I've presented some of the finest vintage pieces in my collection in  an A to Z format of one-of -a- kind Mose titles (J is for Jimma Jamma Girl-She does the wild dance , E  for Electric Slide). These high quality reproductions are complimented by multiple photographs of Mose at home with his family and working on his art.

"The photographs and the art work offer powerful images, touching theSouths natural soul. Its strength rests in the successful revelation ofAfrican-Americans non-academic living art tradition. Its a must for anylibrary  daring to blend art school painters with  untrained artistic genius."

Morris Dees , Founder  Southern Poverty Law Center

    Yelapa swings into view around a final rocky point, a flash of thatched roofs and coconut palms at the foot of the bay, a village  beneath a waterfall, a stretch of tawny sand with a lazy lagoon behind. No Hiltons here, it’s plain to see. Email anton3@earthlink.net  for more info and photos.

    YELAPA, a tiny fishing village of Yelapa was the refuge of Bob Dylan, Dennis Hopper, and other cosmic caballero types who gathered in search of lonely beaches, cheap tequila, and peaceful relaxation. Only fairly recently have more mainstream travelers begun looking to the 2,000-person town as a quiet antidote to the condo complexes and American chaos.
