KIRKUS REVIEW

Years as a Kentucky school teacher, of absorbing interest not only in educational ways, but as record of an individual's growth. From his first job, when he had had only three years of High School, he found his days in Lonesome Valley unforgettable in the lessons they taught him. After college he learned yet more of the problems of teaching. How he achieved the politic way, whom he fought for his beliefs, what a single teacher does with a school ranging from beginners to 8th grade, what can be done about some of the not-so-pretty problems -- all in a lively gripping personal record.
