KIRKUS REVIEW

A winning reminiscence, unburdened by nostalgia, of the author's boyhood -- his tenth year -- in a small Vermont town in 1898. Neither wholly true nor wholly false, Duffus merely sets down episodes and characters as he remembers them, investing daily chores with significance and wistfulness, insisting that some things, not all, were really better then. A lovely book.
