KIRKUS REVIEW

Pretty second rate, though not to be utterly condemned. One reads it as a told tale -- this story of the expanding America of the '60's, told through the childhood of a farmer's son on the Illinois prairies, who runs away from his unsympathetic parents and his childhood sweetheart, wanders for two years, to return to business success and marital unhappiness. The characters lack vitality, the familiar scene is too too familiar, there is little drama.
