About This Item

New York: Macmillan, 1974. Second Printing. hardcover. A near fine copy in a very good clean jacket with some wear to the bottom front corner and spine foot. A realistic novel that won the 1975 Newbery Medal for excellence in American children's literature. This special copy is inscribed by Hamilton "For Madeleine (L'Engle) / With very best wishes / Virginia Hamilton." on the title page. Newbery Medal to front cover. From the library of Madeleine L'Engle. A nearly fine copy in a very good jacket with wear to the extremities. The book also won the National Book Award for Children's Literature as well as the Boston-Horn Book Award. A coming of age novel that covers three eventful days in the life of teenager Mayo Cornelius Higgins. It is set in the Appalachian Mountains on Sarah's Mountain, a fictional Mountain in Kentucky near the Ohio River, that is being encroached upon by a mining company. The book highlights the strange, almost surreal customs of the hill people including their traditions of song and superstition. At its core is the reconciliation M.C. must make between tradition and change.
