Royal Oak, Michigan: Np, 1997. First Edition. Small Quarto. Item #027203
Limited to 150 copies, signed by Margaret Coel and James D. Doss who has written the introduction, and Phil Parks who has produced the four illustrations which are tipped in and finally a handwritten Arapaho word written by Coel for "thou shalt do no murder". While the author is known for her important work Chief Left Hand on the Arapho published by the University of Oklahoma Press in 1982, this is her masterful mystery of a murder that revolves around Father John O'Malley, a missionary priest at St. Francis Mission on the Wyoming reservation and Vicky Holden, a clever Araphao Attorney. OCLC records only one copy at Amhearst College. Bound in red cloth, decorative pastedown to upper board, spine lettering white. A fine copy.
