Synopsis: For 67 years Sam Pickering was a classroom teacher dedicated to education. In the pages of "The World Was My Garden, Too" he roams New England, Arkansas, the Caribbean, Nova Scotia and the familiar and odd plots of mind and thought. He explores shorelines and climbs "hillish" mountains. He sits on porches and talks to passersby and their dogs. He meets strange and delightful people, most of whom are real.

Critique: An inherently fascinating compilation of deftly scripted and reader engaging essays showcasing a perceptive mind and a born storyteller's narrative style, "The World Was My Garden, Too" will prove to be a welcome addition to both community and academic library collections. It should be noted for personal reading lists that "The World Was My Garden, Too" is also available in a digital book format (Kindle, $9.99).
