BUCKSKIN AND SMOKE.
Edition: First printing.
San Antonio, Texas: Naylor, (1971.) dj. Hardcover first edition - A book which depicts family life on the Idaho frontier, south of the Snake River. Thinly disguised as fiction, this is based on the experiences of the author's family who came west from Denmark via Minneapolis. "Writing from the woman's point of view, the author depicts the neighborliness of settlers rather than gunplay and cattle rustling; she records the friendliness of the Bannock-Shoshone Indians who camped each summer on her uncle's homestead; she emphasizes the pioneer woman's ingenuity in making do with what she had to maintain traditions of the past." 119 pp. ISBN: 0-8111-04273.
Condition: Very near fine in woodgrained boards in very good dust jacket (sharp corners, white pages, one tiny spot on page opposite title page, dj price-clipped, has overall toning)
