Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1956. First edition. Hardcover. Conjuring up the ephemeral world of cattle ranchers in the 1880s, this intimate saga delights in a Montana community's boisterous, wanderlusting eccentrics as they chase after love and their unbridled ambitions. At its center is Lat Evans, good-hearted and yet seduced by the possibilities for prosperity in his new life; gradually he discerns how the perils of the natural world, and most especially human nature, can conspire to frustrate a young man's best intentions. The dust jacket design is by William Barss. 346 pages. A fine copy in a very good dust jacket with a 1/2 inch pie shaped piece missing from the spine crown, approx 1/2 inch, with general rubbing to extremities. Item #15107
