119 pp, 8vo (8" H), hard cover in dust jacket. "This is the story of a small French-Canadian boy and his attachment to an old horse that belongs to the local undertaker. It is also the story of his ne'er-do-well uncle who arrives on the scene from the lumber camps full of good intentions and the best of spiritis. Uncle Jean-Marie has no money, but that wouldn't trouble him. His attitude to the ladies of the suspicious little town is watched. Jean-Marie is supposed eventually to b e j o i n i n g his brother in the family grocery business at the Supermart. Instead he is building a stable for the horse and singing in the glee club. The rather intricate relationship between Jean-Marie, his nephew and the various ladies - to s a y no th in g of t he school-teacher, Miss Rogers - comes to life in this most unusual and charming book with astonishing vividness. (It) is a story with that rarest of qualities, the subtle power of lingering in the memory, providing an exper ien ce t hat on e f ee ls one has actually shared...."
