Artist and illustrator, Wendell G. Minor has provided the illustrations to some of the most noted children's book authors, including Jean Craighead George and Alice Schertle. His cover art graces such bestsellers as historian David McCullough's Pulitzer Prize-winning biography Truman, Pat Conroy's novel Beach Music and LaVyrle Spencer's Small Town Girl.
