THE GOOD CROP

The family saga of Quaker Rees who moved with his family from slave to free territory. In Illinois in the years preceding and following the Civil War, this gives sidelights on famous figures, as the Quakers saw, lived and helped make these eventful years in American history. There are many members in this religious family, there is much sentimentality in their personal relationships; the attempts at psychological insight seem slack and the style is fairly wordy. Not making the most of the drama of those years, the story assumes a monotone of somberness in spite of the interesting points of departure, background and the pleasant stress on homely virtues.
