The Blue Doorknob -- Rita Branham Rodriguez
Cornelia Hart Farrer. Her life and apaintings infuse our world with a spirit of adventure through which she saw life in all its peaks and vales. Her artist's eye turned the ordinary extraordinary: seeing Boise River's early spring willows as putting bonnets on and a spinach-green jardiniere by her door as a mailbox. This is the story of a woman filled with joie de vivre, founder of Boise Art Museum and Art in the Park. Author Rita Branham Rodriguez revels in the history of a place and the stories of women whose presence shaped early communities in the West.
