OSKISON, John M.
NY, D. Appleton, 1925. The Cherokee author's first book and, with D'Arcy McNickle's The Surrounded, one of the two most important debuts of modern Native American writers. This one, however, preceding McNickle's book as it does by over a decade, may rightfully be called the first Native American novel of the modern era. Signed by Oskison. A small amount of foxing to the book, and some general, modest signs of wear to the cloth; a very good copy, lacking the scarce dust jacket. A landmark volume, seldom encountered at all, let alone signed. [#028491] $1,250
