KIRKUS REVIEW

Eric Sloane found the diary of Noah Blake, aged 15, and has explained and expanded the boy's brief entries to provide a picture of the life then lived, along with the tools and techniques with which they built a homestead and made it habitable. Occasionally there are more personal items -- the death and burial of their ox, the of a horse, a birthday, etc. Students of American history will find this firsthand portrait highly interesting.
