WITH SILVER by Kathrene Pinkerton


Email this review


story of the development and promotion of the famous silver fur. pany"" -- Edward; who handled the business end and was the idea man, Henry, who could produce healthy prolific foxes; Walter, who took care of the side-line ginseng farm all inspired with a genius in breeding. It all started in Hamburg, Wisconsin, at the turn of the century, with a wild dream and no capital to finance it. Bright with Silver tells the story of the heart-breaking first years, their complete faith in the superior beauty of the silver over the black fox, the hard work and perseverance that went into the creation of his new industry. When the silver fox finally became a ""fashion first"", the Fro brothers went into mink ranching and mutations, but the silver has remained the bulwark and love of their lives. A glamour industry, with highly informed fox and mink lore, described in fascinating and dramatic details.....The author wrote some years ago her own story-Wilderness Wife. Her knowledge of the silver fox drama was first evidenced in a story for girls, Silver Strain (Harcourt). She writes well of the north country she knows and loves.
