SIGNED without inscription to the dedication page by the author. 2nd Printing. Like new, appears unread. Interior is clean and unmarked. Blue pictorial laminate boards are bright and clean, with a hint of shelfwear to show and two small stains to the head of the spine. Without dustjacket (as issued?). Generously illustrated with photographs. A detailed and authentic account of what family life in the coal branch of Alberta was truly like from the 1920's to the mid 1950's.
