First printing. Author's first novel (second book) a picaresque story set in Arizona's racially-mixed society in the mid 1950's. Cover praise from Ursula Le Guin who calls it a 'very funny and tender novel....War, prize-fighting, drinking, macho hunkery, all end in a busted head and a life of grief. His luckless and endearing heroes, Mike and Bonifacio, won't ever get anywhere or do anything, but they have kind hearts and great souls. True romantics, cowless cowboys...always searching for snow in the desert, sometimes even finding it.' INSCRIBED on the title page "for --- with affection and respect" and with a small drawing of a cigar smoking dog with 'Viva Mexico' in a balloon over his head. Dated in the year of publication. 259 pp. Fine in fine dust jacket. .ISBN # 0-06-0170891
