Wild Harvest
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 by over a decade, may rightfully be called the first Native American novel of the modern era. The Encyclopedia of Oklahoma History and Culture says: "...critic Gretchen Ronnow states that [Oskison] 'was one of the first major American Indian writers to grapple with the issues of being a highly educated mixed-blood trying to defend a tribal heritage.'" Owner name front flyleaf; rubbing to the joints and board edges and a vertical crease to the spine. A very good copy, lacking the scarce dust jacket. [#036232] $325
