Metal artist Rod Kagan (1940-2010) was one of the most important American sculptors to come out of Idaho, yet few have seen the scope and breadth of his entire body of work. This is a celebration of nearly three decades of work in which Kagan created well over 1,000 sculptures, many of which are captured on these pages for the first time....Featured throughout the book are photographs taken by Kagan himself of his sculpture, depicting how he saw each work existing within the landscape of Idaho and offering a lens through which to view the sculpture of Rod Kagan.
