“No Turning back is without a doubt one of my most significant works. It seems to be timeless in that it has been reproduced on the cover of a CD album in which a song was composed from the accompanying poem I wrote. Arizona Highways used an image of the sculpture on the cover of a book titled “Stalwart Women”.
Every major western art magazine has used an image of “No turning Back”, and it was featured in “Sculptors of the Rockies”, a book produced by Southwest Art magazine in 2009. The life-size version of “No Turning Back” is now on the cover of a book on my work of the same name.— Veryl Goodnight
