Book Description Ellis Press, Peoria, IL, 1982. Paperback. Condition: Good. First edition. 8vo, unpaginated [ est. 200 pages ], " In the spring of 1980, Pichaske assigned himself the job of visiting the college once a week and putting something on paperódetails of a site visit, abstracts from Chaseís paper, meditations on his own life. Because 1980-81 proved to be a pivotal year in Pichaskeís life, and because Chase was himself a fascinating character (in whom Pichaske obviously reads more than a bit of himself), and because the book comes with maps and photos and even facsimiles of Chase manuscripts, the 52 entries make this little book an interesting exploration of American cultural history."
