A Very Good + to Near Fine copy of the first edition, first printing (spine tail pushed and showing a bit of rubbing -- otherwise Near Fine to Fine with tiny rubs to each board's leading corners), in a Very Good dust jacket (light toning, tiny spots of foxing, a short tear to the front panel's bottom edge repaired with a small piece of tape to the verso, rubbing to the spine ends and panel corners, a note penned to the rear panel beneath the author's photograph stating: "Hulda Irving's daughter / Clarence's cousin" -- perhaps indicating some association between the book's prior owner and Cook-Lynn's family as Cook-Lynn was born "Elizabeth Irving" in 1930 at Government Hospital on the Crow Creek Reservation in Fort Thompson, South Dakota). A quite scarce copy of the first edition, first printing, of Cook-Lynn's DEBUT BOOK, a work exploring Dakotah life and values. Cook-Lynn stated that, in the book, she was attempting " write the Sioux version of " N. Scott Momaday's "The Way to Rainy Mountain" (University of New Mexico Press, 1969) and that the title reflected the function of the badger in Sioux literature -- to keep the plot moving. A well-regarded work, excerpts from it were included in Geary Hobson's "The Remembered Earth: An Anthology of Native American Literature" (University of New Mexico Press, 1979). A Very Good or better copy of this noted Debut, issued by a vanity press and thus presumably in a quite small print run. QUITE SCARCE INDEED.
