    About The Stonemason. From a writer hailed as an American original — and the author of the national bestsellers All the Pretty Horses and The Crossing — comes a taut, expansively imagined drama about four generations of an African American family. The setting is Louisville, Kentucky, in the s.   The Stonemason is the rare work by Cormac McCarthy that is ultimately uplifting. That is not to disparage his great, dark works like the All the Pretty Horses and No Country for Old Men, but The Stonemason is McCarthy at his best with a positive message to boot. Read more. Helpful/5(18).

    Practical Stone Masonry is the first major book in nearly seventy years on the craft of the stonemason. Today the work of the stonemason is almost exclusively confined to the repair of historic buildings, requiring a full working knowledge of the detailed traditional craft practices relating to repairs/5(7). The Art of the Stonemason is profusely illustrated with the author's meticulous line drawings and photographs. Ian Cramb began his apprenticeship at the age of 14 in Dunblane, Scotland. Surrounded by large estates, farm buildings, a ruined 13th century bishop's palace, two large fifteenth century castles, a Gothic cathedral, and numerous other.
