KIRKUS REVIEW

Again our Irish professor goes a-wandering, covering the highways and byways and earning his way with his fiddle, which proves an open sesame to the simple people among whom he prefers to linger. Raggle-Taggle was a landmark, a joy to all who like to be taken to strange places in charming company. It is more than a mere travel book, however, for it is rife of the spirit of universal camaraderie of music and art. There are few books on Spain today; here is one that departs from the conventional but that is part and parcel of the inner life of Spain. There is sparkling humor, keen appreciation of beauty, and a musician's appreciation of the interpretative power of the country's songs.
