[book is moderately shelfworn, no serious problems; jacket shows wear at corners/edges, a few small tears, minor paper loss at spine ends]. "This posthumous selection of related short stories reveals all of [the author's] principal gifts -- of narrative power, of compassion, of insight, of lyric strength -- and suggests the major literary figure he would have become. Though they display a lively versatility in subject, mood and treatment, all the stories are unified by their setting -- the Virginia town of Colonial Springs, the valley hamlets and the mountains beyond." The author had published three novels prior to his death in 1955 at the age of 49.
