Modern life, as everybody kno'.vs. I ravels at a hign speed; but th:r. re times when it seems to. 13 tak- ng as away from the things we alue the most, instead of towaids hem. And so it is that there is a ort .of homesickness in the hearts fa' great ninny people; a home- ickness for that closeness to the •aith. that simplicity, that daily icmact with original life, which iscd to be our heritage but which ve are so rapidly losing in th? whir if O'jr inventions. That homesickness—I don't know list what other word to use—lias moved a talented young writ-i named Howell Vines to write. "l- liver Goes With Heaven," and Ui: esult is a book that is a kec-n I?- ight. .This book tells, very simply, her .he author built and occupied a li!-le cabin on' the banks of the Warier River in Alabama; how •« communed with the living countryside, how lie talked with h's ol;' ;randfath'er and drew from' hint tlie lore of the rivers, ho\v he midi friends with the people who «•:: rooted -to tiie soil (here, and how ic loved a girl whom he visited on tropic summer nights, when t- wliole world was in tune. It is a rambling EOit nf idyll, in: book; but it has been put together with a feeling ar.d a skill at the handling of words that make it memorable. Like most really good books, it is notable not onlv what the author has to say. but also for the way in which he says it "A River Goes With Heaven" i<; in rather .sharp contrast with t'-c average bcok of the day. H ysu • in a big way for smart problem novels or for "gripping" books absu' this and that, you may not c?rc [; it; but. if you have n to;;ch of tlr homesickness I mentioned. yo:Vl enjoy it immensely. It is published by Little, • and Co.. and sells for $2. '. A STUDY OF THE UNIVERSE CONDENSED TO 166 PACTS j The following reviev.- of Pr?I.
