This affectionate memoir is part sociology and part "Alice in Wonderland". For Ms. Daley, the rabbit hole was in Vermont, where she raised her family, and Wonderland was San Francisco, where she taught college-level journalism. This is a memorable journey for all who embark upon it. ~ Reviewed by Alden Graves

The Bromley family has been in the town of Danby nearly as long as my own. My father and Hugh grew up together and Joan was our beloved town librarian. Their farm is truly quite a sightly place and perhaps a final glimpse of the hard business of farming. ~ Reviewed by Sarah Donner
