Book review

From dust jacket notes: "'There is a chill in the autumn air as I walk down the path that leads along the brow of the hill, past the garden and the big lilac, to the clearing just beyond. Already, in the gathering dusk, a few of the stars are turning on their lights.' So begins this book of reminiscences by a man who since this century was new has held communion with the world of nature. ...As a boy he picked 900 quarts of strawberries in his father's patch to buy his first $18 telescope, a spyglass actually, with a 2-inch lens. He has never bought another. Down the years, various universities have kept him supplied with admirable instruments in appreciation of his reports on variable stars and his discovery of many comets on his own....The years of star-gazing and comet finding have made Mr. Peltier happy. Recalling a boyhood filled with discovery and contentment, a marriage of shared enthusiasms and richly savored experience, he projects a sense of peace rare in literature - and in life. His exuberance and tenderness, his delight in seeking and learning, catch the reader at once. And Mr. Peltier can write. His prose is another admirable instrument - supple, free, humorous, and precise - at the service of a highly civilized person with a marvelous story to tell. Twenty-eight drawings and jacket design by the author."
