First Edition. Raymond Lufkin dustjacket art. "This is Alec Hardy's story. Part Welsh, part Indian, he clings to his wilderness life and trapper and fisherman. The call of the land is in his blood. He is deeply suspicious of an Empire-at-war. Yet his love for Flora [and] his brother's enlistment both make him feel the pull of far horizons." Near Fine in a sharp Very Good plus dustjacket.
