(price-clipped) [minor wear to bottom corners, otherwise a tight clean copy; jacket has a few tiny closed edge-tears, rubbing to rear panel, very slight browning to spine]. Novel set in a Mexican mountain village, about the relationships between "residents" (expatriate foreigners who "have come from near and far for the infinite variety of reasons that impel people to escape the dread advantages of civilization") and the native Mexican population, known as "dwellers." Among the former group are "three midwestern families who arrived seeking refuge from a stateside Red witch hunt." Gellhorn lived in a rented house in Cuernavaca for about four years in the late 1940s and early 1950s, a few years after her acrimonious split from Ernest Whatsisname, and drew on her happy memories of that time for this book.
