KIRKUS REVIEW

A chatty, and usually charming memoir about the Pennsylvania Dutch people-among whom the author settled in a small homestead. Ann Hark has a loving eye for the idiosyncrasies and virtues of her chosen people, and writes with great enthusiasm on everything from their cooking (with recipes) to their inverted English and their curious almanac of superstitions. It is a leisurely book full of the simple joys of quiet pursuits, the successful transplanting of wood plants, ""sings"" at the neighbors, the gathering of old legends- some from Revolutionary days.... A personal footnote which will have much of the appeal of the earlier Her Marks the Spot for a special, regional audience. Iss nice.
