Copyright 1970, hardcover, ex-library, 95 pages, with b/w illustrations throughout. SYNOPSIS: "Young Shan finds a black bull snake that he names Old Ben. His Kentucky mountain family do not agree with Shan's friendship to the snake. In this story Jesse Stuart writes about the tensions in Shan's family where his father feels that "the only good snake is a dead snake." Through his gentle ways, Shan befriends the snake and eventually brings about new appreciation by his family for the snake. Great story for kids of all ages and a great lesson in how we should relate to some animals we don't always understand." Bookseller recently acquired an admiration for local non-poisonous snakes who earned their freedom by eliminating pesky field mice around the buildings. CONDITION: Library cardholder/checkout sheet and stamps/notations inside. Dustjacket is enclosed in mylar overlay taped to cover. Binding is secure.
