KIRKUS REVIEW

Autobiographical, but limited to a fifteen year span, from the time the Kents left Donegal, Ireland, where they had lived for a time, to the present -- fifteen years spent in New York and in the country, or traveling to Greenland, to Latin America. A strongly lyrical feeling about America pervades the book -- almost Whitmanesque both in manner and matter. Kent, the artist, would have preferred seclusion; Kent the humanist, entered into cause after cause, here and in South America, and participated in various liberal and creative movements. The record of a vigorous life, liberally illustrated with woodcuts.
