New York; (1957): Henry Holt and Co. First Edition. Octavo. Item #022347
303pp., illustrated by Walter Bower. The author has been known for his newspaper columns, as a war reporter and as a big game hunter. This work tells the tale of warmth and wisdom, love and understanding. This is a moving story of his early relationship with his amazing grand-father. They hunt in the woods of North Carolina, fish the lakes, ponds and sea. Along they way on their adventures, the grandfather talks, instructs and talks of his philosophy. A simple saga of adolescent flowering, a subtle tale of growth under the grand-father's careful guidance. Now his grand-father faces the teaching of death, his death. Bound in brown cloth lettered in pale pink, spine lettering in pale pink and silver. A near fine copy in unclipped pictorial dust jacket with chipping to spine ends and corners, small closed edge tear to upper edge of front panel and rear panel, some finger soiling to jacket. A very good copy.
