Averill, Esther (Illustrated by Feodor Rojankovsky.)
New York: Harper & Brothers, (1945.) Hardcover First Edition
First American edition. A wonderful collaboration between the writer and illustrator - originally published by Domino Press in Paris in 1931. Full color illustrations on almost every page, plus several full page paintings. From North Carolina to Kentucky to Yellowstone, this is a sympathetic portrayal of this quintessional American hero, always in search of the wilderness he considered 'almost Paradise." 60 pp. Very good in illustrated boards with red cloth spine (gift inscription dated in 1948, no dj.) .
