Synopsis: Set in a small, remote community in rural Tennessee in the years between the two world wars, "The Orchard Keeper" is an early classic from one of America's finest and most celebrated authors. It tells of John Wesley Rattner, a young boy, and Marion Sylder, an outlaw and bootlegger who, unbeknownst to either of them, has killed the boy's father. Cormac McCarthy's debut novel is a magnificent evocation of an American landscape, and of a lost American time. "The feeling for the land and seasons is so intense as to be part of the story and there are scenes one will never forget ...A complicated and evocative exposition of the transience of life" - "Harper's". "A true American original" - "Newsweek".

From the Inside Flap: An American classic, The Orchard Keeper is the first novel by one of America's finest, most celebrated novelists. Set is a small, remote community in rural Tennessee in the years between the two world wars, it tells of John Wesley Rattner, a young boy, and Marion Sylder, an outlaw and bootlegger who, unbeknownst to either of them, has killed the boy's father. Together with Rattner's Uncle Ather, who belongs to a former age in his communion with nature and his stoic independence, they enact a drama that seems born of the land itself. All three are heroes of an intense and compelling celebration of values lost to time and industrialization.

Book Description Random House, 1965. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Good. First Edition. First printing hardcover. This is an ex-library book with the usual markings. Otherwise, the the book is good with shelfwear (rubbed through to the boards a bit), soiling inside the covers and a slightly slanted spine. The dust jacket has NO library markings, but it is pasted down to the book, is price clipped and has rubbing, edgewear (including some very small pieces missing at the top of the spine) and light creasing. A good example of a very scarce book. Expedited international shipping is not available. The delivery expectation for international shipping is 7-32 business days, depending upon customer location. Ex-Library. Bookseller Inventory # 006493

Book Description Random House, New York, 1965. Book Condition: Very Good. Uncorrected proof. Light gray printed wrappers. Faint dampstain along the edge of the front wrap, and very faintly in the bottom margins of pages. Advance issue of the author's first book. Despite a strong following among literary cognoscenti, McCarthy remained obscure for years until he finally left Random House in the late 1980s and Knopf's publicity department helped propel him into the first rank of American authors with All the Pretty Horses. Very scarce. Bookseller Inventory # 397705
