The Long Valley John Steinbeck
by John Steinbeck

First Edition.
Price: $3,000.00

New York, NY: Viking (1938)

First Edition.

Very near fine in dust jacket with only very mild edge wear to the top front of dust jacket. A beautiful book, featuring the artwork of Elmer Hader.

Set in the beautiful Salinas Valley of California, where simple people farm the land and struggle to find a place for themselves in the world, these stories reflect Steinbeck’s characteristic interests: the tensions between town and country, laborers and owners, past and present. Included here are the O. Henry Prize-winning story “The Murder”; “The Chrysanthemums,” perhaps Steinbeck’s most challenging story, both personally and artistically; “Flight,” “The Snake,” “The White Quail,” and the classic tales of “The Red Pony.”
