Henry Holt and Company, Inc., 1992. First Printing. Hardcover. Very Good / Very Good. Item #052115
Signed and dated by the author (in the year of publication) on the title page. Clean, bright pages; hard cover has a fold to the spine fabric and softening and edgewear at spine ends, otherwise sound; jacket bears two long, irregular, but closed tears just inside the front foreedge, a priceclip to the front flap, a short tear at the bottom rear, some fading at the spine, and spots of surface wear around the front panel, otherwise well-kept, attractive, protected in a clear sleeve. Much can, should, probably has been said of the quality of the writing. More: before you're half done, you feel every shovelful of soil both as the digger and as the land, and you can't live with either way, but you do anyway because it's beautiful.
