Me and Momma and Big John - Mara Rockliff Appeal Characteristics: visual art, historical, informative, multi-cultural, New York

I picked up this book not expecting anything...and ended up learning a lot. Since i'm not a native New Yorker, I had no idea who or what Big John was...(I figured they were referring to a Saint). I was definitely educated on the fact that stone cutting is a dying art and the many variety of ways Big John has been used.
