WILLIAMS, Terry Tempest
Pieces of White Shell
NY, Scribner, (1984). Her first solo book, subtitled "A Journey to Navajoland," with illustrations by Navajo artist Clifford Brycelea. Winner of the 1984 Southwestern Book Award. Modestly foxed; a near fine copy, lacking the dust jacket. Laid in is an autograph letter signed to Peter Matthiessen, written in 1989 and addressed, "Dearest Peter," asking if he would sign her copy of The Snow Leopard, which she has been rereading and adding, "It is a gift to meet you, to have shared these two evenings in Jackson Hole." Folded in thirds; fine. [#032544] $450
