Edited and Introduction by Rodman W. Paul. Index. Endpapers showing family trees of Hallock and Foote. Illustrated cloth. 6 1/4" x 9 1/2". The biographical reminiscences of magazine writer, illustrator and novelist Mary Hallock Foote (1847-1938). Foote was the wife of mining engineer Arthur D. Foote, whose jobs took the couple over the Far West and Mexico, ending with the North Star mine in Grass Valley, California, where they resided in a house designed by Julia Morgan. Foote's letters were liberally used (including unattributed verbatim quotes) by Wallace Stegner in crafting "Angle of Repose", leading to considerable controversy. Laid in are: (1) Papers relating to a speech by Evelyn Foote Gardiner, the granddaughter of Mary Hallock Foote; (2) An L.A. Times article ("A Classic, Or A Fraud?") by Philip L. Fradkin regarding the Stegner/Foote controversy. A Near Fine or better copy (slight edgewear at the spine-ends), now in a custom clear mylar protective jacket.
