PRAISE FOR THE FIRST EDITION:

"Thanks to Mrs. Kroeber's simple, supple style, the stories all succeed as stories; they please, engage, move, or divert without depending for their effect on their exotic source."—The New Yorker

"The varying but almost always superb story style of these narratives will speak to all."—New York Herald Tribune

"This is a jewel of a book."—San Francisco Chronicle

"These stories enlarge life. They remind us of Shakespeare and Aeschylus. . .. That Mrs. Kroeber's book should generate such thoughts is proof of its power and beauty."—New York Times Book Review
