First Edition with full numberline 4to size hardcover with photo illustrated dust jacket; 114 heavyweight glossy pages profusely illustrated with black and white photographs, most full page in size.

From jacket: "(The author/photographer) describes the fair's heritage - both historically and through interviews with the fair's contemporary participants... His compelling and vivid images range from taut-muscle draft horses straining against their harnesses to belly dancers, from six-year-olds lost in thought with arms around their prize winning sheep to the leathery faces of old-timers... in the expressions of the boys and girls and men and women who show their animals, (the author) has masterfully captured all the promise, hope and uncertainty that comes with participating the diverse events at the Missouri State Fair... (This book) chronicles more than a decade in the life of a historic American tradition." Jacket has light wear. Quotes are for illustrative purposes and remain the property of their respective copyright holders. Thanks for shopping with us! 100% of your purchase benefits charity and supports literacy and lifelong learning.. First. Hard Cover. Very Good/Very Good.
