Description


"Norman Pettingill was an avid trapper and fisherman from Northern Wisconsin. In 1947, at the age of 51, he created hundreds of pen-and-ink drawings. By merging his fascination with nature and backwoods culture with his wild sense of humor, he depicted an out-ofcontrol hillbilly wonderland of talking grizzlies, dancing morons, giant mosquitoes, pipe smoking grannies, hilarious hunting mishaps and moonshine-soaked fishermen! Reminiscent of Al Capp's Li'l Abner, Pettingill's hillbilly heaven is made grittier and more real by his obsessive penwork and the attention he gives to each teetering outhouse, every overflowing spittoon, and each wiry hair growing out of a mountain man's warty face."
