KIRKUS REVIEW

A Vermont mountain community, rated as marginal agriculturally, is indicated as possible government project, provided the farmers will sell out. But a group of them determine to fight the move- to work out some form of cooperative venture and bring their farms back. A halting progress, with many slips back, backgrounds a story of the girl who kept the goal in sight, of the horses she broke to harness, the old hermit whose sheep she saved, the boy who learned to play a straight game, the blacksmith uncle with whom she lived who did more than his share. There are chances lost here for a really constructive job- the the central idea is a good one.
