MATHEWS, John Joseph
NY, Longmans, Green, 1934. His second book, and only novel, a novel of the American Southwest. The first modern novel by an Indian writer to deal directly with questions of "Indianness," the alienation from culture and self provoked by white men's education, and the futile attempt to become assimilated into the dominant culture. This is a review copy, with slip laid in, and a pencilled note on front flyleaf asking that the book be reviewed. Mild spine-fading; a near fine copy, lacking the dust jacket. [#003097] $250
