First Edition. William Siegel dustjacket art. "Through these colorful pages move real, living Mississippi people - pilots and Negro roustabouts, candidates for assembly and poor white trash, a talkative barber and a friendly judge, a dog, a cat and a steamboat. This copy retains the original wrap-around promotional band. Book would be Very Good but for water stain along lower cloth edge, some soiling to page edges, in nearly Very Good dustjacket and band, modestly soiling, small chips at top edge of spine end and rear panel.
