Description

BOOK INFO -

Sand in My Eyes by Seigniora Russell Laune, illustrated by Paul Laune.

Published by J.B. Lippincott Company in 1956.

Hardcover.

SIZE -

256 pages / 5.5 x 8 x 1 inches / 14 x 20.5 x 2.6 centimeters

CONDITION -

Please see the images above for an accurate representation of what the book looks like, but...

Some pencil scribbles on the dust jacket. The dust jacket has quite a bit of wear - fading, small stains, little tiny tears. Scuffing. Etc.

INSIDE JACKET FLAPS -

With the simplicity, laughter, tears, and exuberance of an eighteen-year-old, "Nonie" Laune at eighty recalls the years of her life on the Southwest frontier.

The very young Mrs. Laune first saw the very new town of Woodward, Oklahoma Territory, in 1896, three years after her husband had set up a tent beside the strip of sand which was to be the main street.

Both the Launes helped build the new town, cherished it, loved its people, struggled with its disadvantages (never enough water, always too much wind, and sand, sand everywhere) and had all their fingers in every local activity. Indeed, Woodward may be called the principal character of this enchanting family story.

The glow of a naive charm and the buoyancy of Seigniora Laune's perennially youthful personality make this wonderfully American story of frontier life a stirring, intimate document, alive with many poignant and humorous anecdotes typifying the pride and spirit which built and sustain our nation.

Returns and exchange details
PLEASE look over the description of the book in detail before you purchase it - I try to accurately describe the condition of the item so you don't have any surprises once it gets to you. It's not pleasant for you or for me if you don't read the description and are disappointed with what you receive. Some of my books will have rips or stains or writing in the margins - if this is something that bothers you, you may not want to order from me. But! I always let you know in the—yes—description!

(I feel like I've written the word "description" twenty times...).

If (horrors of horrors) you're dissatisfied with your book... just send me a convo or email - I'll try to work it out with you. I want you to be happy! That would make me a happy Etsy shop owner.

In general, if you want a refund you'll need to return the book to me (in the condition it was in when I sent it) and I'll refund your money once I receive it. There are no refunds for shipping costs.

Shipping policies

I try to ship all items within two days after receiving payment.

Items will be shipping from Maine (USA) and, typically, via the USPS / Media Mail. This is the cheapest method (yay) but usually the slowest method (not so yay).

If there's a huge discrepancy between what you are charge for shipping fees and what they actually ends up costing, I'll refund the difference to your PayPal account or credit card.

If you are ordering a lot of books, I'll usually be able to offer you discounted shipping - just convo me and I'll put a price together!
