Part existential crisis, part road trip, HALF WILD is a richly told story of discovery through the lens of a woman navigating work, life, and bad habits in her late twenties.

Taking an uncompromising look at her own self-destructive behavior, Whitney lovingly documents her experience of untangling from the throes of anxiety, addiction, and feeling alone in the world. HALF WILD rides shotgun as she traverses questions of autonomy and purpose, and explores her ability to craft her own beautiful life. Her writing is unflinchingly self-aware and relentlessly practical, with a masterful eye for capturing the lushness of life.

If you're looking for a catalyst, this book is it. Prepare to be inspired, delighted, and invited to examine the ways you hold yourself back. This book asks you to tap into your sense of wonder as you let your view of the world be reborn. HALF WILD bears compassionate witness to our powerful capacity for healing, growth, and creativity.

New Hope for American Art was authored, designed and published by James M. Alterman, an expert in the field of Pennsylvania Impressionist and Modernist painting. A longtime collector and owner of two fine art galleries, Alterman wanted to create a user-friendly book intended not only to educate collectors and enthusiasts about this art but to help train one's eye.
