All books are first printings of first editions or first American editions unless otherwise noted.

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
NY, Macmillan, 1935. A novel of a white family settled in Oklahoma, spanning the late 19th and early 20th centuries. This was his most successful novel and the only one to go into multiple printings. Inscribed by the author "For Pauline Mazie, Cordially, John M. Oskison." A very good copy, lacking the dust jacket. [#003655] $100
