KIRKUS REVIEW

Further reports from that good-tempered, well-seasoned Maine man have to do with a variety of things. Among them, Spring and willow whistles, cider and vinegar, education today and the century old process of learning, the Androscoggin River's stink, hand mowing and fires for maple syrup, ducks and hens, apples, picnics, cheese, the poetry of whittling, church suppers, winter snows and storms, rat hunting, fishing -- you can see there's quite a pick. A head-on dabster who never sells farm or Maine life short expounds expertly on his likes and dislikes and the good things of life, with more than a little humor. Rewarding.
