About this Item

Second printing of his third book, and first since his novel Sundown, published in 1934. This title is a memoir of growing up in Osage country. Inscribed by the author: "Pawhuska, Oklahoma. August 17, 1944. For ___ ___ with special pleasure and with deep appreciation of his interest. Inspired by the donor, my young friend ___ ___. John Joseph Mathews." Pawhuska was the author's home town, and thus the setting for much of this book. Mathews' first book, Wah'Kon-Tah, a history of the Osage tribe and its engagement with the white man, was a Book of the Month Club selection in 1929. This title was reissued by the University of Oklahoma Press in 1981. Small date stamp to copyright page; light wear to boards; a near fine copy in a near fine, lightly edgeworn dust jacket.
