KIRKUS REVIEW

A columnist of Philadelphia's Evening Public Ledger writes casually and cheerfully of his experiences as a houseowner, and constant repairman, in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. In 1918 he purchased a farmhouse for his wife and succession of offspring which now number twelve, and since that time has had perpetual pleasurable vicissitudes with his 1832 house which was not built with an eye for posterity. Rose is a self styled ""old fashioned fundamentalist"", and enjoys doing everything himself, from plumbing to defective fireplaces to bricklaying and plastering and masonry, gardening, and gentleman farming. Not necessarily a ""go thou and do likewise book"", but a simple, homely record of one man's trials and enjoyments as a jack of all trades.
