This review is from: The Complete Poetical Works of James Whitcomb Riley (Hardcover)
Riley's simple homespun tales.. his inflection of the local Hoosier dialect of the era and the unique way he has of creating a treasurery of pictures in your mind.. gives the reader a real feeling of stepping back in time and exploring the memories of the heart. Being a Hoosier farmer myself this author captures the emotions of the soul and releases them in the childlike purity of his script. I see now why my mother loved the works of James Whitcomb Riley. I'm just sorry it took me so long.
