Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Editor LeMaster (English and American studies, Baylor Univ.), has culled from six of Stuart's autobiographical works segments that express the down-to-earth educational philosophy of the Appalachian novelist, poet, teacher, and school administrator. The selections from works dating from 1938 to 1970 are arranged in a loose chronology of Stuart's life. Each is accompanied by the editor's commentary and evaluation of the work as a whole. LeMaster has done an admirable job of selecting and editing the readings. Not only will this collection save time for education students, for whom Stuart is required reading, it will also help acquaint the contemporary reader with this remarkable man.-- Shirley L. Hopkinson, SLIS, San Jose State Univ., Cal.
From Appalachian writer Stuart's autobiographical works, LeMaster has chosen selections that demonstrate his philosophy of learning and teaching, and his philosophy of life. The selections establish a loose chronology of events in Stuart's lifelong education and describe his experience as preschooler, student, teacher, and school administrator. Annotation c.
