First Edition. "An uproariously funny story of a tiny mining settlement in the West, which is shaken to the very roots by the sudden possession of a baby, found on the plains by one of its residents. The town is as disreputable a spot as the gold fever was ever responsible for, and the coming of that baby causes the upheaval of every rooted tradition of the place. Its christening, the problems of its toys and its illness, supersede in the minds of the miners all thought of earthly treasure." Basis for the 1920 black and white silent Universal Film production directed by Jacques Jaccard and starring Harry Carey and Carol Holloway. Almost Near Fine, some rubbing at lower spine end, some mild signs of wear, publisher's name flecked at spine, in incredibly scarce original publisher's printed dustjacket, Near Fine.
