About the Book

The “Stone-Cutter” is the story of a very successful sculptor-artist, with little formal education, who shuns publicity and lives the life of a hermit. A young man who happens to find him working on a hill-top, becomes awe-struck by his artistic ability and is drawn into the world of art. His goal is to follow in the footsteps of the master. The two strike up a student-teacher relationship which develops into a binding friendship. However, the teacher has a wandering spirit, and disappears somewhere in Africa, while the student, bent upon finding him, follows him there in an attempt to bring him back to civilization. The results of this search can only be discovered by reading this book.
