About this Item

First Edition, Affectionately INSCRIBED AND SIGNED BY STEGNER "TO J. P., the favorite reader of this author * * Wallace Stegner". 8vo, publisher’s original green boards, the spine and upper cover lettered in navy, in the original dustjacket. 240pp. A fine copy but for subtle fading to the spine edge and gentle wear to the jacket. A HANDSOME COPY OF THIS VERY PERSONALLY INSCRIBED FIRST EDITION AND IMPORTANT STEGNER TITLE. Set in a village in New Hampshire the book tells the story of one way of life warred with another, native against outsider, the static against the changing. Modernity and change came with the summer people, a quiet group who sought the upland farms and the lakeside cottages, while the toughness of a sound old tradition remained with the villages and farmers. Between the two, caught in the crossfire between the contending forces, were a handful of people who belong to neither, or to both. The book is a story of familiar experience, a universal story.
