Navajo Canyon   

      F388  

Doubleday 1952

A Double D Western – Very Good book with light edge wear, touch of slant at top of spine and slight page edge soiling and dusting, in a Good jacket that has rubbing and soiling on the mostly white jacket, edge wear, sun fade on spine and a small ½ x Ό inch chip at top of spine not affecting any lettering, some foxing on verso of jacket. This copy inscribed – For Bondi De Toth - Sincerely Tom.  This is possibly an association to Andre De Toth who directed many B level western movies (his most famous movie was based on The Cabinet of Dr. Bondi) and this may have been a nickname, or one of his many children. This is a historical novel involving the relocation of the Navajo to eastern New Mexico and has Kit Carson as an important character. Quite scarce title.

of Birds
