(price-clipped) [nice tight copy, no significant wear, very light dust-soiling to top edge, a couple of tiny holes at top edge of rear cover (exposing boards); jacket lightly soiled, some rubbing to rear panel]. (line drawings by Susan Neri) "A moving, undoctrinaire view of small-town and backcountry folk as an 'endangered species.' Focusing again on his own California North, [the author] interweaves his narrative with first-person stories, letting the stubborn holdouts of country living -- the 'hard and crusty' older folk and the 'newly converted agrarian' young folk -- tell in their own voices what is happening in the still backwaters of the nation."
