Rawlings, Marjorie Kinnan.
The Secret River. Illustrated byLeonard Weisgard.
A Near Fine copy with previous owner stamp to the front flyleaf in a Very Good plus, unclipped dust jacket with a small chip to the head of the spine and some wear to the spine heel. This story of a young black girl who sets out to find a "secret river" with enough fish to feed her struggling family, was intended to be a longer work of novel length that would address the universal child and the enchantment of childhood imagination. But Rawlings' bouts of writer's block prevented her from expanding the length of this poignant children's tale. The story was not published during her lifetime (she died in 1953) and remained in manuscript form until it was found in her papers after her death. It is her only children's story, and the only fully realized work that she left unpublished. Even though there were reportedly 18,000 copies printed in the First Printing, this is a very elusive Rawlings title in collector's condition.
