Publication Details: Victor Gollancz, 1936

Notes: Scarce. A novel of New Mexico, the author's second; his promising career was curtailed by his early death a couple of years later, aged 38. He was born in Chicago, attended Yale University, and then moved to Santa Fe, where he spent the remainder of his life and was closely involved in the arts and literary scene there throughout the 1930s. There was no US edition until The University of New Mexico Press brought the work back into print in 1977.
