About This Item

Boston: Houghton,Mifflin Company, 1976. Nigel Ash is a traveler alone, a fighter pilot, a bush pilot after that, a man who has always flown a little too close to the wind, a ruthless man with a temper to kill. But after illness he recuperates in a log cabin lent to him by his brother and sister-in-law, Lorna, and another side of Ash appears..... As the currents of his temperment ebb and flow, Ash at last finds some purpose and meaning in his "botched-up" life. As in so many of David Walker's novels, the landscape, the birds and the animals are exquisitely depicted. This is a most gripping and exciting story, but more than that it is a superb study of a man of our troubled times: one who arouses feelings of liking and suspicion, of admiration and censure. Black cloth boards, lime color title print to front board and spine. No ownership markings. illustrated pictorial still-bright dust jacket by Ned Glattauer. Price intact. A nice clean copy.. First Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Very Good.
