BOOK NOTES AND ACKNOWLEDGMENTS
And Tell of Time, by Laura Krey (Houghton Mifflin Company),
is a wholly enjoyable story of life on the lower Brazos River during
some twenty years following the Civil War. Free from mawkish-
ness, immaturity, and exaggeration, the book unfolds a wholesome
and veracious picture of the patriarchal society of its period, and
is a distinctive contribution both to literature and to history.
