Critical Essay by Evie Wilson and Michael Mccue

Margaret Craven's [Walk Gently This Good Earth], a family saga, again demonstrates that she is an author of considerable talent…. All is not blissful in the Westcott home. There is a death and a rejection by one daughter. The family must also cope with the social turmoil caused by the Great Depression and World War II.

Their love for each other and for the land will draw teen readers to their story.
