Each of Frost's plates is accompanied by a facing page containing Irwin's verse, much of it in the manner of James Whitcomb Riley, and the combination is an effective one. Cotains a number of sporting subjects--golf, shooting, angling, skating, and baseball, and numerous scenes of farm life and down-home America.
