NEW ENGLAND FLAVOR by Pearson Haydn S.


Email this review


A to country living recalls the way things were in the author's youth, and earlier, on a New Hampshire farm. All the homespun attributes- the food, the clothes, the medicines - are in his memories; there is the old general store, the smithy, the bridges and the farm animals; there were always chores - some onerous, some with definite fringe benefits, and always the round of farm activities. He regrets the changes in, and the vanishing of the old ways, and his view of the life he knew and relished, then as now, is warm and wholesome and is transmitted with thorough-going sympathy. Of more appeal perhaps to those who have known a similar background, this will restore sights and sounds from the past with its gentle accounting.
