KIRKUS REVIEW

A sympathetic and charming picture of the life in a Japanese village where the older inhabitants make an unsuccessful stand against the encroachments of new ways of living and working. Ancient customs and traditional methods and modern ideas find a middle course through the respectful insistence of the young people and the dignified yielding of their elders. A warm understanding of modern Japan and the personal problems of its people makes this good reading and with the popularity of A Daughter of The Samurai you should have an interested market. Line drawings.
