KIRKUS REVIEW

Sheldon's previous book, Tranquility, went out of print (930 copies) virtually on publication. Readers everywhere acclaimed it as one of the best Derrydale had published and demanded more. Here it is -- but in a ""limited limited"" -- 485 copies. Jump quickly to get in your order, so as to supply your collector customers. Everyone to whom you sold Tranquility will want this volume. The spirit of the place, the charm of the characters of the Adirondacks community, the Judge, the Doctor, the Captain and the Dark Haired Lady still grace the pages of this second book. There duck, woodcock, grouse and trout still feed and sport and life are synonomous. Grand old boys, with their zest for hunting and shooting, their appreciation for the good things of nature, good food, fine weather, beauty, kindliness, and loyalty, their Yankee humor and big heartedness. Sheldon writes with facile pen, his stories make the reader loathe to turn the last page. There's a serene nostalgic quality which every sportsman senses.
