Grant Carter, who claims his occupation is “following the shade around the house” (he’s a former businessman), reviews The River White: A Confluence of Brush and Quill, a new book that showcases Duane Hada’s watercolor art and brother Ken Hada’s lyrical poetry.
“To the Hadas the river has been a mother’s hand and a father’s instruction of woods and water. Together they are giving back. The River White, with every page, expresses their affection so clearly. The watercolors place your eyes in the bow of a river boat and lyrical poetry is your guide’s voice as your travel through the cliffs of the Ozarks to the flatlands of the delta where the Mississippi River welcomes the White.”
