(no dust jacket) [moderate wear to extremities, slight age-darkening to spine cloth, bottom rear corner bumped, vintage bookseller's label (Hathaway House Bookshop, Wellesley) on ffep]. (B&W photographs) Biography of the noted anti-saloon crusader, "the woman with the hatchet," described in the book's introduction as "the most industrious meddler and busy-body that even the Middle West, hotbed of the bizarre and the fanatical, has ever produced." (He also quotes her favorite description of herself, as "a bulldog running along at the feet of Jesus, barking at what He doesn't like.") In his Author's Note, he claims that "I have invented none of the dialogue in this book. All statements attributed to Carry Nation, or to anyone else, are from her own autobiography and other writings; from court and prison records; from letters, interviews and accounts of her activities published in magazines and newspapers during her lifetime; or, in a few instance, from the recollections of persons who knew her and saw her in action."
