KIRKUS REVIEW

A Book of Free Ballads"" reads the sub-title. American historical background for most of the characters and incidents giving inspiration for these ballads modelled, largely, on the old ballad forms. Pirate tales -- witch tales -- folk tales -- sea tales. Boys will like them, and men who prefer story in verse, to conventional modern poetry. Can't see a wide market.
