Dust is now in Brodart cover. This is a wartime (WWII) production book with normal Wartime stamp on copyright page. Stated First edition. "Kate was an incurable manager, from childhood, when she took her charming but drunken father firmly in hand, to her final capitulation, after years of matrimony, to the second chance with the husband she had worshipped -- and loved -- and married -- and bossed for years. The situations Kate found at hand demanded a guiding spirit -- so we share her urge to direct events; and Kate does it well enough, except when her own interests are involved. And then her poisonous -- and too, too obvious (one would think) neighbor -- steals the candy right from under her nose. This is the story of a life-long duel between Kate and bad Lalia; the setting is just the sort of Mid-West town that Tarkington knows best." (Kirkus Review) Newton Booth Tarkington (July 29, 1869 - May 19, 1946) was an American novelist and dramatist best known for his novels The Magnificent Ambersons and Alice Adams. He is one of only three novelists to win the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction more than once, along with William Faulkner and John Updike. Booth Tarkington was born in Indianapolis, Indiana, the son of John S. Tarkington and Elizabeth Booth Tarkington. He was named after his maternal uncle Newton Booth, then the governor of California. Tarkington was an unabashed Midwestern regionalist and set much of his fiction in his native Indiana. In 1902, he served one term in the Indiana House of Representatives as a Republican. ; 7.90 X 5.60 X 1 inches; 359 pages

Book and dust (not price clipped) in very good condition. Former owner's name neatly written in front. Map endpapers. A reviewer said "I am so glad that John Waters took the time to research and write this book. It is extraordinary, accurately capturing in vivid detail the Battle of the Atlantic in World War II. This is a perspective from both the Allied convoy escort ships and the German submarines that were bent on stopping the flow of material from North America to Britain and Russia.As a historical document it is filled with primary source material that has been woven into an accurate true story that makes you feel as if you are actually there experiencing the action as it is described. This is possible because not only did the author thoroughly research the subject using war records, ships logs, and personal interviews he also had first hand experience." ; Photographs; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 279 pages
