Tight straight book with an owner's name label inside the front cover. Originally published in hardback by UNM Press in 1973. No other marks or stamps. An eloquent and perceptive book about an extraordinary group of older Americans, written by the man of whom Time said, 'his astonishing volume of publications has made him the most influential living psychiatrist in the United States.'

'If they are old Spanish-speaking inhabitants of one state, they are also Americans who in many ways resemble others of their age elsewhere, regardless of racial or ethnic background. On the other hand, I believe they themselves express those qualities of mind, heart and spirit that distinguish them from some of the rest of us.' - from the Introduction.
