Major General J E B Stuart, brilliant commander of the Cavalry Corps of the Army of Northern Virginia, was completely committed to his staff.

This is a rollicking good story that takes place in mid-century 1950. Europe is still recovering from the Great War and it will be more than a decade before the start of the jet age and the ubiquitous McDonald’s. The story is penned by a witty, naive American who blithely travels to Switzerland to attend the University, expecting the same academic life. The first of many surprises is that sex in the old world, or new world is liberated. He is beset with language problems, people problems, an abortion, the suicide of a girl he knew far too well.

Here the celebrated picture-book artist Ilse Plume has imagined a fresh and very American setting for the lyrics a farmstead in the Pennsylvania Dutch country. A young Amish farmer takes a wife, the beautiful wife takes a child, the child takes a nurse, the nurse takes a dog, and with each successive verse the seasons turn, the farmer grows older, and his farm grows more prosperous, more lively, more richly populated. Ms. Plume’s colored-pencil drawings are inspired by the folk art and decorative motifs of the Pennsylvania Dutch. They are as comforting as a star-patterned quilt, and as s
