Item Description: Eyre & Spottiswoode, UK, 1953. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Good. First Edition. FIRST UK EDITION ?Miss Garnet Cameron, full of life and yearning for adventure, shocked polite society in New York by announcing her determination to marry Oliver Hale, a California trader. The year was 1844 when California was still under Mexican rule and the only means of communication was by the Jubilee Trail to Santa Fe, infested by hostile Indians and the hunting ground of every kind of adventurer. Garnet beat down opposition and married Oliver. From the beginning she stepped right out of the frame in which sheltered young ladies were enclosed. On their honeymoon Oliver took her to the exotic Winter Garden Theatre in New Orleans, where no unmarried young lady could have gone, and there Garnet met the astonishing Florinda, whose destiny was to be so closely interwoven with her own. What was waiting for Garnet in Los Angeles, after her thrilling adventures along the Jubilee Trail, was something which might have daunted a conventional heroine. But Garnet is much more than this. What puts this remarkable novel in the class of Gone With the Wind is not only its astonishing scope and verve, its brilliant realisation of the Golden West when it was the Mecca of every adventurer and adventuress, and the authenticity of its historical detail, but the force of its characterisation. Garnet, like Scarlet O'Hara, is a woman who grows and changes through experience, in Garnet's case the experience of betrayal as well as of poverty and physical danger, the experience of friendship and loyalty in strange places, of false love and true. Garnet is a living woman and in the portrait of Florinda the author has shown the human reality behind the glitter of a typical Bad Girl of the West. Oliver, John Ives, Silky and Texas, the men who were Garnet's companions in her astonishing adventures, are, in their very different ways, typical of the kind of men who came from all over the world, even from distant Russia, to seek fortune or forgetfulness along the Jubilee Trail. The attacks by hostile Indians, the unfriendliness of the Mexican grandees, the contrast between the refinements of the Eastern seaboard towns and the bawdy life of the Californian drinking saloons, all have the force, fascinating and shocking, of a rough and vital period when men lived by their strength and their wits and women by their toughness as well as their beauty, once they stepped out, as Garnet stepped, from their conventional setting. The book sweeps the reader along to an end which is not merely happy but inevitable in the characters.?

Item Description: Thomas Y. Crowell Company, New York, 1950. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Collectible; Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Good. First Edition. First edition, with $3.00 list price on jacket. Ink gift note on front endpaper, 1 inch chip from jacket spine head, several minor closed tears, jacket spine toned. 564 pp. 8vo. A novel of early frontier California, before the gold rush led to mass migration from the East. From the jacket: 'In 1844 a fashionable lady of New York was leading a neat, proper life. She went to elegant parties given by her mother's friends. She met polite young men, and everybody expected that she would marry one of them. The prospect appalled Garnet Cameron, full of life and yearning for adventure. No wonder Olive Hale, with his tanned face and unruly sandy hair, who seemed too big for her mother's dainty parlor, stirred her imagination and won her heart. Oliver was a trader. Every year he made the trek over the Jubilee Trail from California to Santa Fe, crossing the mountains and deserts by mule train. This year he had come to New York to buy goods, and next summer he was going to take the trail back to California. Here, surely, was all the adventure Garnet could want. The excitement began with their honeymoon in New Orleans. Oliver took her everywhere, even to the exotic theater called the Flower Garden. It was here that Garnet met the astonishing Florinda, whose destiny was closer to her own than she guessed. When Garnet reached Santa Fe she met men like John Ives, and Silky, and Texas - men such as she had never known before. They became principal figures in the life that lay ahead of her. She was with them when the mule train fought its way back over the harsh trail to Los Angeles and fate wove its surprising web around her. Jubilee Trail is a story of vivid people and stormy times. Gwen Bristow has written of the history of California as vitally as if it were happening today. Her story brings alive the era of the great ranchos - when California was still under Mexican rule but was also looked on as one of the Russian czar's outposts of empire - and the little town of Los Angeles, in the days when it was just a huddle of adobe houses by the side of a muddy creek. Against the brilliant panorama of one of the most exciting periods of American history, Garnet learned tragedy and treachery and despair. She learned how to meet life without compromise, and at last she learned the real meaning of love.' ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Gwen Bristow (September 16, 1903 in Marion, South Carolina - August 17, 1980 in New Orleans, Louisiana) was an American author and journalist. Bristow became interested in writing while reporting junior high school functions for her local newspaper. After studying at Columbia University, she wrote for a number of literary magazines and journals. Eventually, she moved to New Orleans, and worked at the Times-Picayune. She became interested in longer forms of writing -- novels and short stories -- through her husband, screenwriter Bruce Manning, and published her first novel in 1929. Bristow reached the pinnacle of her career with the western romance Jubilee Trail, which became a bestseller in 1950, and was adapted to a moderately successful film in 1954. She continued to write novels and articles for magazines until her death in 1980.Keywords: FICTION NOVEL WESTERN AMERICAN HISTORICAL. Bookseller Inventory # 2153403
