Soft cover. Condition: Very Good. This is the first book of this legendary Kentucky writer. This was the first reprint (in 1964), of the original 1930 edition. Dissatisfaction with the book, made Jesse destroy most of the super scarce original, and even the 1964 edition is quite scarce. No other reprints until the Jesse Stuart Foundation reprinted it in 1998, were done. This is an 80 pp. softback. This copy has a tipped-in page with an inscription and autograph by the author from 1972. Slightly erasured area near top of front, just to be specific, but does not radically harm appearance or condition. Lists to $250.00 for signed copies online. -- THE PHOTO IS A STOCK IMAGE -- NOT A PHOTO OF THIS COPY !!. Inscribed by Author(s).

Greetings and best wishes - Jesse Stuart, Dec. 19th 1964. P.S.this one, my first published book, was the beginning of a dream. This was published 35 years ago, four years before Man With a Bull-Tongue Plow -- these poems written in High School at the steel mills and in the army barracks and in college.
