Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1972.
Hardcover. First edition. Neat owner's name front pastedown else fine in fine dustwrapper with none of the usual fading to the spine lettering and with very slight wrinkle on the rear panel. The author's second book, and his first by a commercial publisher, about his experiences teaching poor children on Yamacraw Island (Daufuskie Island) off the coast of South Carolina. Basis for the movie *Conrack* that featured Jon Voight and Paul Winfield. A lovely unread copy.
