KIRKUS REVIEW

Sundry remarks and observations on the joys, perils and vexations of rustic residence together with suggestions of cautionary nature for the inexperienced-so runs the substance of the subtitle to this glossary of life in the country as experienced by cosmopolites who have bought a little place in Connecticut. Despite his efforts at debunking -- his sly and not so sly digs at various illusions, his undercurrent of keeping a few of those illusions regardless proves him one of those "zanies" who continue to live in the country and like it. Chiefly a picture book -- drawn says he, from life -- with "rural" scenes illustrating his alphabetized captions.
