THE WOMAN OF THE WOOD: A Tale From Old Russia

When three men quarrel over the woman they have jointly created -- the woodcarver gave her shape, the tailor gave her a beautiful dress, and the teacher gave her speech and thought -- a wise old man asked to arbitrate decrees that the woman must decide for herself since nobody can really own another person. Whereupon the woman chooses the old man who turns young and handsome at her touch. An ancient lesson with contemporary appeal, efficiently though not strikingly told and attractively decorated with Evaline Ness' subtly dynamic woodcuts in olive, chalky aqua and clay tones.
