KILDEE HOUSE by Rutherford Montgomery


Email this review


Kildee House was built by its hermit owner at the foot of a giant redwood, the rough bark of the tree forming one of the walls. Here Jerome Kildee sought solitude in his 100 acre mountain domain. But soon he found friends, -- a pair of raccoons, then a pair of skunks. He found himself witness to the drama of birth, life, death. A simple story in which true values are explored without preciousness or over-emphasis, as man renews himself with nature as healer- and finds again that creative ability which had stultified in his commercial career. There are moments of adult bitterness-offset by two young characters. Nature-loving children particularly will enjoy it.
