Ironically one of the painters is called 'Thomas Cole '...
There's a couple of book s on Amazon. Let me know if anyone has an opinion on them as I'm also looking to buy one.

I have a few books on these guys...
one of my favorites is called "American Sublime"
http://www.amazon.com/American-Sublime- ... 286&sr=8-1 (http://www.amazon.com/American-Sublime-Landscape-Painting-1820-1880/dp/0691115567/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1/002-6650646-4280835?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1185555286&sr=8-1)
guess it's out of print now, though... a bit pricey ;)
I also have the "Frederic Church" by John K. Howat. Like that alot too.
