About the Author

Edwin Tunis was a well-known artist, illustrator, and muralist.

Colonial Living won the 1958 Thomas Alva Edison Foundation Children's Book Award. His other books include Colonial Craftsmen and Colonial Living, also available in paperback from Johns Hopkins.


By means of simple, fact-packed text and hundreds of sharp pen-drawings, [Tunis] covers the subject from the earliest stone axes right down to nuclear fission. Handsomely done. * San Francisco Chronicle * Any boy of over ten should relish this lively and authoritative survey of man's weapons... It's a large, handsome, often witty book. * The New Yorker * Brings history to life... a magnificent treasury of lore and information. * Military Science Book Club Review *
