This new edition of Where Your Heart Is, originally published in 1970, retains the excellent original text, but "with the advances in technology, we have been able to update the images to full color and enhance the quality of the images overall." Most of the over 270 images have been newly photographed or scanned for this publication.
In his research for this book in the late 1960s, the author was able to interview at length Dunn's widow and two adult children, as well as a number of Dunn's students, and record their first-hand accounts of the man and artist. A South Dakota native, he also had unrestricted access to all of the artist's papers and artwork bequeathed to South Dakota State University.
This is one of only two monographs on this Golden Age illustrator. Dunn learned his trade from Howard Pyle and became a member of the group of illustrators known as the Brandywine School. Dunn later trained numerous illustrators himself, most notably Dean Cornwell, Mead Schaeffer, and Harold Von Schmidt.
