Kansas City, Sheed Andrews McMeel, (1976). His first book, a collection of "narrative contemplations" of the desert, told in a poetic, lucid prose, the clarity and simplicity of which is uncommonly suited to the subtleties of perception and expression it contains. Inscribed by the author. A thin book, published by a small midwestern publisher more noted for its religious titles than its books for the general trade, this book has become quite scarce in recent years. Owner name on front pastedown; small spine bump; near fine in a very good, supplied dust jacket with light wear to the top edge and some shallow tactile water rippling. [#018950] $150
