Very nice clean, attractive book. Some fading to gilt at face, but still quite readable. Pages pristine with small bit of light staining to exterior bottom edge. SIGNED on front free endpaper by author thus, "Greetings to one who has wandered from his home-land! Jasamyn S. Garrett" A heavily researched history in verse of the Bootheel area of Missouri which includes all of the New Madrid District of the Louisana Purchase with the exception of the area which was organized into Arkansas County and then into the Arkansas Territory before Missouri became a state. The appendix is especially noteworthy, as it contains facsimile copies of the Francois Lesieur Papers, found during the demolition of an old house in Madrid around the time the author was writing. Lesieur established the first trading posts in New Madrid and Petite Prairie. Book measures 8"x10-3/4", is illustrated (maps too) and has 244 pages. Bookseller Inventory #
