Snowshoe Country, by Florence Page Jaques. 4to., 110 pages, with numerous illustrations from each pen drawings of Francis Lee Jaques. Minneapolis; University of Minnesota, 1944. Price $3.00.

The illustrations sell this book on sight, and the text is equally good. It is an account of the border country of Minnesota and Canada under winter conditions: the Rainy Lake watershed, the Superior National Forest and the Quetico Provincial Park in Canada.

The illustrator has been with Captain Bartlett to the Arctic and with Templeton Crocker to the South Seas. Probably on one in America has so expertly interpreted in black and white the multicolored out-of-doors and birds in their flight.
