About This Item

New York: Harper & Row. F/NF. 1988. 1st Edition. Hardcover; 1st Printing. 1st edition/1st printing. Author's 1st book. Straight, clean, tight book with no writing in it. The dustjacket is price intact, clean, crisp and unfaded and has no chips or tears, but if you hold it slanted to the light you can see a very faint wrinkle to upper front near spine. Very nice example of a scarce book. .

Synopsis

The Bean Trees , first published in 1988, is the first book written by Barbara Kingsolver and was followed by a sequel, Pigs in Heaven . Taylor Greer hightails it out of Kentucky as soon as she gets a car, refusing to be just another small-town girl.  She soon finds herself in Oklahoma near Cherokee territory, and in a parking lot, a desperate and frightened woman hands Taylor a Cherokee toddler and leaves. Taylor and the child, named Turtle, keep moving out west and try to find somewhere to put down roots and grow. British Fantasy Award (1988)
