The love story of Mona Martinsen and John G. Neihardt
The daughter of an international financier, Mona Martinsen was a tall striking, visionary sculptor studying in Paris with the renowned Auguste Rodin. The son of an American poneer family on the great Plains, John G Neihardt was a short, brilliant, but impoverished poet and writer. It seemed like a colossal mismatch, yet both were irresistibly drawn to the same things. In the beginning as in the end, it was a passion for beauty and a clelbration of the marvelous that bound Mona and John.
