Book cover picture of Houston, James. RUNNING WEST. Toronto: McClelland & Stewart, (1989.)
First printing. The fifth novel by this writer, artist and naturalist, who spent many years living among the Inuit of the Canadian Arctic. Based on real people and actual events, and told in a rollicking style, appropriate to the era in which it is set, this is a story of growing love between a young Indian woman of the Dene Nation and a Scottish bank clerk who had been banished from his country as they traverse the Northwest in the early 1700's, enduring deprivation, violence and near starvation. This is not only the true first edition, it is a much more attractive edition that the US edition. Illustrated with a map and in text drawings by the author. Houston also did the illustrated endpapers and striking dust jacket design. Includes an epilogue with the historical information. 320 pp. Fine in fine dust jacket. .ISBN # 0-7710-42620
