A rural chronicle of our flower friends and foes, describing them under their familiar English names. By E. M. Hardinge. 16mo, cloth, illustrated. $1.00.
This book is a delightfully chatty volume, carrying us through the whole season with the wild flowers as they make their appearance. It is intended for those who love flowers as flowers, and who like to read about them without getting into too close contact with technical terms and classifications.
The author is well known as a writer for the New York "Evening Post" and the magazines, and her articles are gladly welcomed by those who like both nature and literature.
