Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Finch's essays offer a personal perspective on the culture, geography, history, and especially the natural life of the Cape Cod region. While Finch has a clear, pleasant voice, he rarely shows genuine warmth or passion for his topics. He tends to be descriptive, cool, and analytical. Finch's experiences and observations are moderately interesting, occasionally evoking strong images. His philosophical meanderings about death, disease, and natural savagery are intellectually stimulating. Some of his colloquialisms (e.g., ``cohogs''), similes (``like pulling loose teeth from soft rotten gums''), and terminology (``a crowd of cars had begun to gather'') will distract some listeners. While this may be nitpicking, his use of other, more pretentious terms makes the presentation seem somewhat unbalanced. As reader, Finch fails to convey dimensions of innuendo and feeling. Regional libraries may have some interest in purchasing, but most others can pass.-Carolyn Alexander, Technical Information Ctr., Ft. Hunter Liggett, Cal.
