First Edition. Interesting African-American themed novel best described at the front flap of the dustjacket: "Children in the Mist are the negroes whom the white man has brought here - the white man who shirked the responsibility that this act of his laid upon him. The tales here gathered together present a chronological continuity, covering the time from the emancipation of the negro down to the present. If they picture these dark people not only as children, but as children groping through a fog, the arraignment is not of the negro, but of his sponsor, the white man. In the spirit of justice and sympathy, Mrs. Martin portrays all the black man's virtues and his limitations. Sweet and lovable, mystified, baffled and exploited, discouraged and embittered, these hapless people, children who after fifty-six years of freedom, still see as in a glass, darkly." Very Good or Near Fine, darkened area at front spine gutter, in nearly Very Good dustjacket, some creasing and splitting along front spine edge, top spine end with quarter sized chip.
