A Fine first printing of the first edition in equally unblemished dust-jacket, SIGNED by author Ivan Doig on the front fly-leaf.

In this moving motherly memoir, Doig brings to life his childhood through the letters of his mother, Berneta, who died on his sixth birthday. In her letters Doig discovered a spunky, passionate, can-do woman as at home in the saddle as behind a sewing machine. Doig eloquently captures the texture of the American West during and after World War II, the fortune of a family, and one woman's indomitable spirit.
