About this Item

One of Texas' most famed books, a classic story of a three week trip down the Brazos River with a man and a pup that happened over a half-century ago. The man recalls the history along those banks and made the trip after he read that plans had been made to dam up the river to create a series of reservoirs. As it turned out, the plans were only partial fulfilled, only one dam was built and it was miles downriver, but the history of that area was thereby written and still remains. The book is tightly bound and thus not read much, clean, without names or other markings, a stated first edition. Since the writer's death in 8/2013 first editions have become hard to find. The DJ has not fared quite as well as the book. It is not price clipped, shows the $4.50 price, but shows some light edgewear and in the spine area some chipping. mostly on the top edge above the printed title. All told, the combined size of the chips is less than the size of a dime. Otherwise, the DJ is bright and clean, now in a protective mylar sleeve. Bookseller Inventory # 002967
