A thoroughly enjoyable book, honest, sympathetic and well-handled. Present day story of sturdy, philosophic, kindly farming people, in Oklahoma. The sort of book that those who like Phil Stong of State Fair days will like. A warm, graphic story of the people, with the farm and the problems of holding the family together, of keeping ahead of the mortgage, of making a go of the way of life they have chosen, as background rather than end in itself. A second novel -- her first got a good press, moderate sales. This should do better, particularly in the Middle West, where regional stories that are not social problem tracts, are much needed.
