Book - 2017
Rate this:
The indefatigable Nancy Schon is bet-known for her iconic "Make Way for Ducklings" sculpture in the Boston Public Garden. Based on Robert McCloskey's books, visited by thousands of children and adults every year, it has become as familiar and beloved a Boston landmark as the swan boats and the gold dome of the State House. Now she tells the story not only of how the ducks came to Boston (along with the multiple political, artistic and personal challenges involved) but also how they travelled to Moscow, championed by Barbara Bush and Raisa Gorbachev, to mark the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (START).
