KIRKUS REVIEW

An unabashed, undimmed sentimental remembrance of a childhood in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, in the early 1900's, unreconstructed and still a quiet mourning for the Lost Cause. These magnolia memories are largely of a personal, incidental nature; of Prince's father, claim agent on the Southern Railway; of his two uncles- great hoaxers- and his minister Grandfather; of his drawing- he is today a very successful illustrator; his dog, Duke, and his colored friend- Wump; hobbies; first loves; football; the local Fire Department; and finally the $500 inheritance which went to buy the chicken farm his father always wanted...... The good old days, in fond, gentle recall.
