This collection consists of eleven short stories featuring Wellman's most popular character, John the Balladeer, a Johnny Appleseed type of character who tells his tales of wandering as if they're spoken, rather than written. Because every story is told from first person viewpoint—gives the tales a down-home, casual quality. This copy is signed by the author, in a nice discernible hand, "To Jack." The book has a few lightly nubbed corners as seems to be usual with this title–and I don't know why!—and the typical rubbing at edges of d.j., with one corner just tipped. But it's a nice bright copy and the Lee Brown Coye dust-jacket illustration captures the folkish quality of the tales, perfectly. A near fine copy in d.j.
