KIRKUS REVIEW

A charming story with the feel of days when country folk came to Old-timers' Picnic bringing the young timers along, and when buggies and farm wagons and surreys provided transportation. Dusty was unhappy because his father was feuding with Mr. Folly, on whose farm the picnic was to take place, and Dusty was told he could not go. And then he found a way. A family troupe of fiddlers and singers were stranded (they made a habit of missing trains, it seems) and Dusty invited them to stay over at his home- and then asked all the neighbors in. Even the Folly family arrived- and the feud was settled then and there. A nostalgic story, in the Oklahoma tradition.
