175 pp. Nearly new. An Orlando Sentinel review of the book was laid in front, leaving a yellowish acid shadow on the inside cover. Otherwise clean. Signed "Regards, Patricia Acton April 1989" on half-title page. Fascinating, detailed account of the lawsuit Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings faced after publishing "Cross Creek" in 1942. Zelma Cason, a former friend and neighbor of Rawlings, resented the way she was depicted in the memoir, and sued for $100,000. Cason won the case on appeal but with only nominal damages. The four-year legal battle left Rawlings tired and depressed, but later on she resumed friendship with Cason.
