James Bowsher is a renowned folk artist, storyteller, archaeologist, writer and teacher, featured on PBS and other television programs! The Wapakoneta, Ohio, native has built a monumental complex known as the Temple of Tolerance. The structure, assembled from boulders, fragments of demolished historical structures and other evocative items, has become a landmark. His storytelling involves showing original objects and artifacts related to the stories he tells. The objects have their own stories from objects held by Abraham Lincoln to the power of superstition.
