This vintage book is a comprehensive account of American puppetry, with information on its history, popularity, development, and much more. "Puppets Through America" is highly recommended for the modern reader with an interest in puppets and marionettes, and it would make for a wonderful addition to collections of related literature. Walter Wilkinson (1888-1970) was a writer, artist, and puppeteer. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly rare and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on puppets and marionettes.
