286pp. Octavo [21.5 cm] 1/4 green cloth with light green cloth covered boards and a gilt stamped title on the spine. Very good. The edges of the spine and covers are lightly bumped and rubbed, and the top edge of the text block is foxed. Minor spine lean. The front free endsheet has a former owner's name in pen. The dust jacket is in very good condition, with mild age-toning, and several chips and short closed tears in the edges. There are several small, faint stains on the spine and the surrounding areas of the panels.
Tipped in title page, due to the publisher's recall. Stegner's love letter to the American West. Part autobiography, part travelogue, part literary criticism and part social history. Colberg #A20.1.a.
