WONDERFUL DETAILED WORK Oct 17, 2007
This book (one of three) was purchased as part of a study prior to a production of 'A Fiddler on the Roof'. I proved invaluable by providing background to the way of life and conditions during the period of the musical play.
Very enjoyable Sep 22, 2007
A terrific collection of short stories by the Yiddish Mark Twain. It's great to see his stuff still in print.
A tale in the tradition of Tom Sawyer and Hackelbery Finn Sep 24, 1999
