KIRKUS REVIEW

Breezy, smartly personal history of a cafe society celebrity (musician, lyricist, and mother of grown children as well), falls in love with and marries a rodeo star from the World's Fair. Here -- with a dramatic gesture -- is back to the primitive life with a hang. An Oregon ranch, authentic, ungilded, provides the new setting, and this is anecdotal adventure of their life there, of carnivals and parades, of peripatetics among the hired help, of Pegleg Pete who turned out to be a fighting drunk, of the blackmail of a friend, of cattle and butchering, of visitors --and spongers, of Porgy, the ranch poodle, and Bess, imported as his mate, and of an acquired family. Casual, candid, really superficial, but it just might go -- on a minor scale.
