A popular interpretation of regional panorama, colorful to start with, and highlighted with close-ups of political backgrounds, food, horses, hunting, the heroism of Kentuckians, the Trappist monastery in Bardstown, slavery, the Civil War, duels and feuds, whiskey and distilleries, tobacco...composite picture of an individual state. Of largely local and neighborhood interest, I should think. Illustrated. Though the Kentucky Derby has widened the enthusiasm for Kentucky beyond its boundaries.
