KIRKUS REVIEW

Much to my own surprise, I found this quite fascinating. Clara Sears has constituted herself a one-woman investigating board into the field of folk portraits as ""committed"" by itinerant artists through rural New England, at the beginning of the last century. It is an interesting story of her personal adventures in search of material; it is good Americana, in revealing all sorts of facts and foibles and color and human interest about old New England; and it throws revealing light on a very special phase of American artways and folkways.
