New York: World Publishing, 1970. First Printing of the First US Edition. A Fine tight copy in a Near Fine unclipped dust jacket. Mary Campbell has written an ode to New Englanders offering interesting and useful information about New England, its customs, its people, its old homes and ghosts, its hills and valleys and rivers and coves and its ways of keeping house and garden. The author chronicles the seasons, describing a bird for each month--its habits, feeding, song--and a flower its cultivation and literary associations--and then describing in a personal way about the landscape, historical events, and anecdotes of rural life with recipes. The text is perfectly complemented by Tasha Tudor's color illustrations. Item #22368
