KIRKUS REVIEW

An informal history of Ohio, delightfully told in informal style, by a man who is proud of his Ohio heritage and traditions. The angle is pleasantly personal, as he chats about the elements that went into the making of his state, -- the land and the fighting for it, the settlers and their individual types of settlements, Connecticut transplanted, Virginia, the Dutch, the French; statehood and government; the river, the roads, the lake and the canals; various religious sects; architecture and the arts; education; writers; presidents. A state story that should have wide local interest, and a certain value for school and public libraries outside the state. Harlan Hatcher is probably the most popular Ohio lecturer to club groups, etc., and the news that he has done a book on the state should be publicized through these channels.
