248 pages, cloth, dust jacket frayed otherwise very good. 1st edition. From the website of Ohio University: The Orchard Children, first published in 1977, is the account of Maddux and Baker's unsuccessful attempt to adopt two foster children. In emphasizing the importance of childhood, it has affinities with Maddux's only other autobiographical work, Communication, written in 1941 when she was twenty-eight and published in 1991 by the University of Tennessee Press. Just as one of the central themes of Communication is the need to take children seriously on their own terms - to pay attention to their requirements for honesty and affection - so the message of The Orchard Children is that the legal system,which determines who will raise abused or abandoned children, seems often to ignore the best interests of the children themselves. Maddux's universalizing of her story resulted, as with A Walk in the Spring Rain, in a wider audience for The Orchard Children. The book inspired a CBS television documentary, titled "Who Will Save the Children?" and starring Shirley Jones and Len Cariou, which aired in December of 1978. N° de réf. du libraire 17377
