About this Item

First edition. Cloth spine strip over original dark tan stiff wrappers decorated and stamped in black with woodcut of an old time prospector. The author notes on the rear cover:"This cover is guaranteed to curl in the desert sun, but it won't fade much, I guess." 64 pps. illustrated with woodcuts by the author. Humorous, anecdotal history of California's Borego Valley, peopled by old-timers and weatherbeaten prospectors. Laid in is the publisher's promotional bookmark-sized synopsis of the work. A fine, tight copy. A difficult book in any condition, this copy is particularly nice. Bookseller Inventory # D5414
