Listening Woman

First printing of the first thus, Sidewinder reissue of Hillerman's second Navajo mystery. Fine minus, unread book that has very slight crimps to spine ends; in a Fine minus jacket that has slight touch of rubbing. Paper is laid-in with the signature of Hillerman. An introduction has been provided by Peter MacDonald, past Chairman of the Navajo Nation. This was the second of the Sidewinder reissues of early Hillerman mysteries. There were several variants of these editions – this is the trade edition. These editions met with protests from Harper Collins and were terminated after Listening Woman and Dance Hall of the Dead – this was a shame, since these were quite impressive volumes, with beautiful art by the late Ernest Franklin.
