KIRKUS REVIEW

More landmarks in the map of Wayne County as young Lemuel spends a summer as hired man on various farms. There are tales and stories of family, friends, neighbors and local characters; there's a picture of cradling wheat, of haying; there are accidents, fatal and otherwise, the blacksmith, the poolroom, domestic teasing and young Lemuel's fourth love. There are visits of distant relatives, a new baby and Lemuel's early writing. Fullness of life and the peace of living in these warm-hearted sketches of farm and country and people.
