[light shelfwear, very slight deterioration to binding at top of spine; jacket is heavily edgeworn, soiled, shallow chipping along top edge, large chip at bottom of rear panel (no loss of text)]. The second book that the author managed to squeeze out of his experience on an East River tunnel gang. (The first, "East River," was published in 1935.) This book is often cited erroneously, by the chronologically-challenged, as the source for the 1935 Raoul Walsh film UNDER PRESSURE, which was actually based on "East River," which at one time (prior to its publication) was actually called "Sand Hog." Confused? Maybe you need both books, to help you sort it out. (Yes, I have a copy of "East River," too.)
