SIGNED by the late Ms. Shields to the title page. First paperback edition. Appears gently read, and not remaindered. The interior is solid and clean other than a black line through a stamp to the inside of the front wrap (softcover). Corners are lightly bumped. Spine is gently rubbed to the tail, lightly faded & "cracked" in two places. Some light "scribbly" indents mostly to rear wrap and minor shelf wear to show. Shields was a multi Governor General Award & Pulitzer Prize winning author and was one of Canada's finest writers.
