It is a record of no great consequence, of ways of life in a typical Wisconsin and thus American village on the eve of World War II, set down for no other purpose than to enable one to look back into time on occasion and mark the inevitable alterations which take place from year to year and decade to decade. Insofar as it reflects other villages and other countrysides within our borders, this is a record of an American way of life in all quiet places throughout the United States." - preface, p. x. Wilson 561. A fine copy in nearly fine dust jacket with light rubbing to front corner tips. (#164238).
