Very Good condition 1st Edition/1st Printing hardcover in Fine condition dust jacket SIGNED by William Vollmann on the title page without inscription. This book is actually new but it has two flaws as follows: there is a significant dent (see photos) on the top edge of the front cover and a very shallow dent in the bottom edge of the back cover. Otherwise, the book and dust jacket are spotless and free of wear or damage. A good opportunity to get a nice signed copy for half the current going rate. Will be bubble-wrapped and shipped in a sturdy box to ensure safe delivery. Book is heavy so shipment outside of the United States will require extra funds. Bookseller Inventory #
Synopsis: The National Book Award winner takes readers inside the epic fighting retreat of the Nez Perce Indians
In this new installment in his acclaimed series of novels examining the collisions between Native Americans and European colonizers, William T. Vollmann tells the story of the Nez Perce War, with flashbacks to the Civil War. Defrauded and intimidated at every turn, the Nez Perces finally went on the warpath in 1877, subjecting the U.S. Army to its greatest defeat since Little Big Horn as they fled from northeast Oregon across Montana to the Canadian border. Vollmann?s main character is not the legendary Chief Joseph, but his pursuer, General Oliver Otis Howard, the brave, shy, tormented, devoutly Christian Civil War veteran. In this novel, we see him as commander, father, son, husband, friend, and killer.
Teeming with many vivid characters on both sides of the conflict, and written in an original style in which the printed page works as a stage with multiple layers of foreground and background, The Dying Grass is another mesmerizing achievement from one of the most ambitious writers of our time.
About the Author: William T. Vollmann has written nine novels, four collections of stories, six works of nonfiction, and a memoir. He has won the National Book Award for Europe Central, the PEN Center USA West Award for Fiction, and the Strauss Living Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters.
