About This Item

South Dakota: Dakota Homestead Publishers, 1988. First printing. Hardcover. Very Good/good. Signed by Torchy on the facing page without inscription. 1st printing hardcover in jacket. A clean, beautiful copy in yellow cloth. Minor edgewear and some crimping at the spine tips. A solid copy with some light bumping to the top corners of the textblock. Dustjacket is not as good, with two tears (one to the head of the spine and one to the bottom of the front panel), and overall scuffing. 298 pp., indexed, filled with black and white photos. An autobiography, but also a story of the University of Washington sports and the impact Torrance made on their programs.
