"Sherman Hines was born in Liverpool, N.S. and although outhouses didnot occupy a mandatory place in his early years, a deep affinity for them was developed by his interest in the privy at Grandma's house. This was located over a brook having a soothing gurgle not unlike indoor facilities andvery reassuring to a small boy.

Thus grew 'Outhouses of the East' . - from the dj. Gift inscription, else very good in lightly rubbed dustjacket.. 20.00
