KIRKUS REVIEW

Otto Kallir's short biographical notes on Grandma Moses and a charming group of anecdotes from her own autobiography set the tone for this collection of short stories and poems handsomely embellished by 30 full color reproductions of Grandma Moses' paintings. Stories about country schoolhouses, covered wagon life, a family's adjustment to their first automobile, a steamboat trip to Boston; settings among the snow covered hills of New England, the rugged terrain of New York state, the winding rivers of the midwest consistently re-create the aura of early rural America and the exciting century of Grandma Moses' life. Robert Frost, Laura Ingalls Wilder, Clara Baldwin, Rachel Field, Elinor Wylie are among the authors and poets responsible for a varied plunge backward into a time and place modern youngsters should know and will surely love.
