About this Item

Green cloth with green title block. Light uneven sunning to spine and edgees. Tips of corners bumped. Previous owner signature to front endpaper dated 1935. Text is clean and bright, no marks. Unclipped DJ with $2.50 price shows chips to top edge and upper corner and head of spine, minor edgewear, rubbing to corners. Lovely cover art by James Preston. "An unusual novel, presenting the picture of the fight for justice for a negro in Mississippi, in the hands of a woman lawyer. Mose has incurred the hatred of an overseer, and kills the man sent to kill him. Racial pressure prevents Mary Winston from having the case settled out of court, the jury is "fixed", the witness intimidated, and Mose sentenced to life imprisonment. There he finds happiness, with his patch of earth and his preaching. It is fundamentally the picture of likable, humbly intelligent Mose, never hysterical, taking the downs of fortune in his stride, slowly coming to an understanding of his part. Nothing here of the "quaintness" or playfulness usually portrayed in negro stories, but rather their puzzlement, their unaffected dignity, the overtones of a decaying white race." (Kirkus Review).
