COLD AS A DOG AND THE WIND NORTHEAST

This is a volume of six ballads about the coast of Maine. They are salty, humorous, with a touch of the spectral in which death, or the supernatural, is the interloper. Ruth Moore who has an established audience with her regional novels retains their narrative value with these ballads; they are good reading and in the classification of regional poetry, well above average. The appeal however will be largely local- down- east.
