Signed by the author on the title page. One of the harder Stegner titles to find in this nice condition. Only 2500 were printed, and less than 2000 sold. Stegner's agents wrote on April 14, 1948 (seven years after publication) that "Wally Stegner says, with regret, that he cannot find any immediate use for 515 sets of sheets for Fire and Ice. I am afraid, therefore, that you will have to have them pulped." Colberg A5.
