This offering from James Dickey, the author of 'Deliverance' is the first paperback edition after the hardcover first. It is in trade paperback format and is a small quarto. The book contains many examples of Dickey's poetry. Dickey is primarily a poet and if you have only read his novel you are missing much of the power and lyricism of his writing. This book is in very near-fine conditon and is a fairly scarce offering. There is some very minor turning of the front wrap at the outside corners. They are very, very small and really do not detract. John Updike calls Dickey the "High Flier of American Poets, in 'The Eagle's Mile' he is flying higher than ever, so high the earth is reduced to its elements, its essential radiance" An inspiring work of poetry..
