About This Item

New York:: Macmillan,, (1974.). Hardcover -. Near fine in cream boards with beige cloth spine in near fine dust jacket. (gift inscription, price-clipped). Later printing. One of the best young adult stories by this prize-winning African American writer, the story of an imaginative boy whose life is changed when he meets two strangers who make their way past his home. Winner of the Newbery Medal, the National Book Award, the Boston Globe/Horn Book Award for Fiction, and an ALA Notable Book. From the front flap: 'Mayo Cornelius Higgins sits on his gleaming, forty-foot steel pole, towering over his home on Sarah's Mountain. Stretched before him are rolling hills and shady valleys. But behind him lie the wounds of strip mining, including a mountain of rubble that may one day fall and bury his home. M.C. dreams of escape for himself and his family. And, one day, atop his pole, he thinks he sees it -- two strangers are making their way toward Sarah's Mountain.' Set in the author's native Ohio. 278 pp.
