THE INDIAN MUMMY MYSTERY: A Wilderness Mystery.
Edition: First thus- first clothbound edition.
Irvington-on-Hudson, NY: Harvey House, Inc., (1962.). Hardcover first edition - Mystery for older children set in ranch and mesa country in southwestern Colorado near Mesa Verde National Park. Illustrated with drawings by John J. Floherty Jr. Originally published in the 1950s under the pseudonym of Troy Nesbit, these wilderness series books had refreshingly progressive views of women, Native Americans, and the environment, and Folsom was prescient in having his characters often oppose corporate and government efforts to develop wilderness areas. A good juvenily mystery that has stood the test of time. 282 pp.
