Nice copy of the winner of the 1972 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. Wallace Stegner described 'Angle of Repose' as "a novel about Time, as much as anything--about people who live through time, who believe in both a past and a future."
Here, Stegner tells the story of a historian, Lyman Ward, who loses his connection with his son and living family and decides to write about his frontier-era grandparents.
