KIRKUS REVIEW

A leisurely, informative, travel, rather than guide, book which is based on a rambling motor tour of the various sections of the peninsula. Thoroughly appreciative of its beauties, well informed of its history, curious about the relics of the original days, interested in names and places, the author's junket takes in the romantic Evangeline country, the half-wilderness of the Eastern shore, the sea havens and playgrounds of the Atlantic coast, the aura of old houses, the cheerfulness of the orchard regions, vacation and stopping places, on and off the beaten track, all sorts of anecdotes and meetings that occurred during the trip. There is no rushing about in this relaxed travelogue, but pleasure for those who have been there and incentive for those would see for themselves.
