Author Name    Eggleston, Magdelana.

Title   MOUNTAIN SHADOWS.

Publisher    William Heinemann/British Book Service (Canada), London/Toronto, (1953), Ist edition.

Seller ID   10237

254 pp, 8vo, hard cover in dust jacket. "...the story has as a background the hills and the Rocky Mountains of Alberta; in the foreground are the mining centre of Coaltown and, living in it, a young girl of nearly seventeen - not a fairytale heroine, but a delightful person, natural, impressionable and intensely alive. Her name is Maggy Mileris and she is the daughter of Lithuanian immigrants, for Coaltown is a 'little Europe' and contains no less than thirty-five different nationalities working and living there, not to mention the gypsies who come and go, and the pedlar, Eli Kharam. Like most communities, only a little more so, Coaltown is full of snobberies, and Maggy, who had never thought that nationality was important, soon finds that other people think it is..." Very light edge wear to baords, two light marks to top/bottom of textblock. Dust jacket has light edge wear, four small closed tears archivally taped, minor rubbing. VG/VG
