Georgia O'Keeffe's paintings of giant flowers and the deserts of New Mexico may have brought her great fame, but the artist got her start a long way from the American Southwest. Born on a Wisconsin dairy farm, she was a child who was happiest spending time by herself outdoors. Once she announced her intention to become an artist at age thirteen, little could get in the way of this fiercely independent young woman. Her strength and determination would prove to be crucial as she broke into the all-male art world of the early 1900s. Author Jodie A. Shull introduces a new generation of readers to the artist who revealed the beauty of America through her own unique style of art.
