About This Item

New York, NY, U.S.A.: Harper & Row, 1970. The true first edition (stated on copyright page with the number line on the second to last page ending in the number "1") of the author's first book and the first Joe Leaphorn. Dampstaining to back of bottom of dustwrapper (not evident from front). Dustwrapper shows one 1/3" closed tear to top of front panel and scuffing to top of spine. Overall, the book and purple dustwrapper show as "tight and clean" (especially in the mylar protector). Might be a printer's copy, because it has technical information on type-setting written on the ffep. in pencil. A very respectable copy at a "respectable" price. Laid in is a bookplate inscribed to me by the late Mr. Hillerman. . Signed Bookplate. First Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/VG+.

Synopsis

Joe Leaphorn must stalk a supernatural killer known as the "Wolf-Witch" along a chilling trail of mysticism and murder. When Lt. Joe Leaphorn of The Navaho Tribal Police discovers a corpse with a mouth full of sand at a crime scene seemingly without tracks or clues, he is ready to suspect a supernatural killer. Blood on the rocks . . . A body on the high mesa . . . Leaphorn must stalk the Wolf-Witch along a chilling trail between mysticism and murder. -
