KIRKUS REVIEW

From the six New England states the author picks his personal favorites to illustrate the charm of American villages. His preferences are Hancock, N.H., Litchfield, Conn., Little Compton, R.I., Old Bennington, Vt., Old Deerfield, Mass., and Wiscasset, Me., and although there may be some dispute about his choices, the photographs well support his claims and underline his thesis that to know more of our villages is to understand our country better. The clarity of the photographs emphasize the architecture, pictorial qualities of the ""ideal"" towns he has chosen, and the running text provides historical, anecdotal, biographical footnotes to the pictures. A regional book primarily, a vacation and/or tour companion, and, as always, a pleasant piece of bookmaking.
