About This Item

New York: Vanguard Press, (1935). First edition of the author's first book. Based on his experiences living in Texas during the Great Depression. The title refers to someone with authority--namely bosses and police; poor folk and the powerless just wore shoes or went barefoot. Minor binding-glue bleed-through near inner hinges (which is common) otherwise a very good or better, nice clean copy with only the barest wear to the covers and with the brown top stain still very good. Lacking the original dust jacket but offered in a facsimile one. HIS FIRST BOOK
