KIRKUS REVIEW

A novel of early Minnesota -- the period about 1850 -- the incident the founding of the town of Welcome by two youths. A pioneer story in the best tradition, this gives an authentic picture of the sunny side of pioneer life, with good characterization, and a story that ""marches"". But somehow, set against the virility of a book like The American (reported above), this seems to lack depth. It will however appeal to those who like their pioneer stories somewhat emasculated, and the Lovelaces have a following in the circulating libraries and the public libraries. This is an excellent book for that middle ground of adult books for older boys and girls. Sell in both departments.
