DescriptionThis is the autobiography of the circus performer and puppeteer David Lano, with many first-hand accounts from American show life in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Lano recounts his seventy-eight years as a professional puppet master. Like his father, grandfather, great-grandfather before him, David Lano was a traditionally trained puppet master who built all his own marionettes and took the shows he performed with his little people on the road. A beautiful look at the life of a traveling showman and at a dying art form.
