Boston: Little, Brown, 1939. First edition. “Sandoz's angriest and most political novel ... depicts the troubles and responses of working people trapped in the Great Depression. .... When this book was published, Sandoz ... received threats from individuals who felt some of her characters were a little too close to current figures in Nebraska politics” (from the website for the Mari Sandoz High Plains Heritage Center). Covers lightly soiled otherwise very good in very good dust jacket with rubbed creasing along front flap fold and few creased tears to upper rear panel.
