Signing with Ross Ward's daughter, Tanya Goodman.

When Tanya Ward Goodman came home to New Mexico to visit her dad at the end of 1996, he was fifty-five years old and just beginning to show symptoms of the Alzheimer's disease that would kill him six years later. Goodman's father, Ross Ward, was an eccentric artist, collector, and founder of the Sandia Mountain museum, Tinkertown. In Leaving Tinkertown, Tanya tells Ross's story and shares the tragedy and unexpected comedy of caring for her funny, stubborn, creative dad.
