A beautiful first edition/first printing in Fine condition in Very Good dust-jacket without the Caldecott medal, lightly chipped at spine ends, little rubbing to edges. Scarce to find in this condition.
Writing of his mother and father and their mothers and fathers, Lawson says they, like the ancestors of many others, were never famous but were "strong and good" and helped to build America. Line-and-brush drawings are sometimes humorous but more often depict the strength and goodness of the land and its people. The 1941 Caldecott Winner ; B & W Illustrations.
