Description

Heartfelt poetry from the heartland. This is a first edition hardback of "From the Valleys to the Mountains: Midwest Poetry" (no dust jacket). The book is a compilation of poetry by midwesterners, published by the Midwest Federation of Chaparal Poets Book Association.

CONDITION: Very good. Red boards are square, clean and tight. There's a smudgy previous owner's name in ink on the front free endpaper. Very minor shelf wear. One scuff to back cover. No dust jacket. Three poets signed their pages in ink (see listing below).

PLEASE consult all photos in full-frame mode.

The introduction explains that many of the contributors are published therein for the first-time, but the volume does include work by some nationally published writers (for example, Brenda Euland of "If You Want to Write" fame.)

"From the Valleys to the Mountains" includes numerous photos, line drawings and woodcuts.

This particular book is signed by several poets on their respective pages:
--Margarette Ball Dickson, Minnesota
--W. C. A. Wallar, Minnesota
--Roba Beatrice WArd, Minnesota

All poets are indexed in the back of the book

Copyright 1945 by

First Edition
204 pages

Ships USPS Media Mail (approx. 5-10 pages) from Portland, Oregon.

(Curious if a specific 1940s poet is included? Send me a convo and I'll check!)
