Book Condition: Very Good


Light shelf wear and some browning to the endpapers, otherwise a clean copy with no writing except for the author inscription. The dust jacket is faded along the spine and has edge wear and chipping. Small amounts of paper loss at the corners, a larger amount at the head of the spine without affecting the title. Jacket and frontispiece/title page illustrations by Rus Anderson. The author has inscribed the book in a unique manner-writing it backwards (right to left), which you have to hold in front of a mirror to read: "To Foster, without whose help this book would never have been written." She has signed it in a normal fashion for English script (left to right): "Love to you both, Love Jean." The story: Two teenage boys are thwarted in their efforts to help with the demolition of an old Western pioneer hotel and get caught up in solving an 85-year-old mystery. 189 pages.
