KIRKUS REVIEW

A buoyant record of a girl and artist, between fifteen and twenty four. Sustainedly natural and outgoing, with only occasional spasms of depressions when the world goes wrong. From childhood, her object was to "draw to live and live to draw" -- and this included keeping on with schooling, in spite of hard times, household chores, a year of teaching -- and then the gift of a chance at art school, in St. Paul. Her first love -- a break -- a new beau -- then scholarship to the Art Student's League in New York.
