London: Sheed & Ward, 1939. First edition. Tales of life in the West of Ireland from a native Nebraskan. The Irish "treat every stranger as though they expected him to write about them and wanted to give him plenty of material....But we ... have never seen it put into a book -- not even by Synge--as it has been put into this book" (from the jacket flap). Pages a little age darkened, light offset to hinges, otherwise near fine. In very good lightly soiled dust jacket with mild wear to edges and spine a bit tanned. A scarce book in the first edition and especially so in dust jacket.
