Notes The book is clean, straight & tight, the upper spine end is a little bumped from shelving, otherwise it would be fine. Although a stated first edition the smallest number in the number line is 14, so a 14th printing. The dust jacket is price clipped, otherwise clean, bright & crisp. The Newbery Award Seal is on the front panel. It has a touch of edgwear, mostly at the spine edges. 'Joan Blos's moving novel captures the hardship as well as the tranquility of early American farm life and the sturdiness, the tenderness, of the people whose way of life it was'. Winner of the 1980 Newbery Medal for the most distinguished contribution to American literature for children. A very nice copy!; 8 1/2" x 5 1/2"; 144 pages
