The Secret River

By Rawlings, Marjorie Kinnan




The Secret River, written by Kate Grenville in 2005, is a historical fiction about an early 19th century Englishman transported to Australia for theft. The story begins with an insightful flashback to England, and goes on to explore issues surrounding the question of what might have happened when Europeans colonised land already inhabited by Aboriginal people. According to a review in The Telegraph, The Secret River has more action than Grenville's previous novel,The Idea of Perfection.

THE SECRET RIVER

Rawlings, Marjorie Kinnan

New York:: Scribners, 1955. First edition. 12mo, unpaged (c.64pp.) printed entirely on cafe-au-lait paper with fine and effective illustrations by Leonard Weisgard in black and white on the beige text paper. There is an explanatory introduction by Julia Scribner Bigham, Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings' literary executor. (The book was issued after her death). Internally very crisp and just about faultless, and bound in a warm beige cloth with a large cover drawing and spine title in white ink, both unblemished. The only fault to the cover is slight shelf wear to the corners and spine tips and faint darkening to the top edge. The pictorial dustjacket in beige, black, white and green is largely intact, with small chips at the top and bottom of the spine, shelf wear to the edges, and with a one-inch tear at the top of the rear panel. The price of $2.50 on the front flap is intact. A very good copy.
