C. AN ISLAND CABIN By ARTHUR HENRY This, the record.of a voluntary Cru soe, has all the vitality and directness that come from personal experience. Mr. Henry and two companions, city weary like himself, take possession of a small island within a hundred miles of New York. They are literally monarchs of all they survey. The courage with which they attack the problems of this most primitive life smacks of the more heroic days of Defoe. The book is written with a vigor and sympathy that is irresistible.
