THE LAST RUNNING. Drawings by John Groth

New York: Lyons & Burford, (1990). John Groth. First Edition. Hardcover. 4to. ALS laid in to Beef Torrey presenting him the book for his collection (dated 2005). An old Comanche named Starlight comes from Oklahoma to Texas with eight compatriots and demands of old Tom Bird the largest of his buffalo, which the Indians eventually kill, in less than graceful manner, and then head home. Such is the bare frame of this remarkable story, filled with remembrances of old raids, narrow escapes, days of intense confrontation and bold blood, now gone. "It is a classic in its idea," says A. C. Greene, "and an artistic masterwork in its fulfilment." The text is handsomely illustrated with drawings by the late John Groth. From the estate of Beef Torrey, writer, raconteur and friend to many many writers. A fine copy / a fine dust jacket. Item #12880
