KIRKUS REVIEW

An average collection, with the regional material standing out as the best, and with a masculine rather than feminine appeal. Plot stories predominate; topical situations play little part, except for one depression story and a good Nazi terrorist story. The regional material is represented by Charles Martin writing of the Cagins, James Still and Jesse Stuart of Kentucky folk, David Thibault of Arkansas Negroes and so on. There's a good story by William March; a first rate horror story by Robert Coates; some rather insignificant stories by important writers, -- O'Hara, Appel and others.
