Book Description Sono Nis, Victoria, 1978. Soft cover. Condition: Very Good ++. First Edition. This is described as Rippon's first non-crime club novel. It is set in northern Quebec -Sims Settlement - and is therefore able to play the Indian forces against the Eskimo, and the English against the French. And everybody against Ottawa. Meet Annie Monday, Indian Johnee, Davidee David, Mademoiselle Marcot - the teacher, and Con McKeen - the pilot. Rippon's dialogue will put you squarely at the center of this small (fictitious) northern community - complete with its Hudson's Bay Store. Cond : Paper wrapper is white with black (and blue) lettering and decoration. Cover drawing is of the community and its scattered oil drums. Also a photo of the dog Ahmi - which translates somewhere between dreamy and unknown. Volume is square tight, and bright, with minimal wear. P/O name on half-title. Excellent reading copy. Quote (p. 55) : " The Davids lived in the best kept house on ther near side of the Eskimo section and Sara was openly envied by the other wives. She owned good furniture, a refrigerator, an electric food mixer, an electric iron, and often shopped for ._._._. .". Seller Inventory # 007772
