Finger, Charles J.; Pitz, Henry C., illustrator
Title HIGH WATER IN ARKANSAS
Book Condition Whisper of edgewear, a very pale, very tiny dot of stain to front cover, else fine, in color-illustrated boards; in illustrated dust jacket that betrays a ghost of age-toning, a trace of edgewear, and a tiny patch of pale dampstain. A superb copy.
Edition First edition.

Humble, befreckled Tad North wins a medal for his heroic rescue of--among others--a black family adrift in the Arkansas River flood. Warmly realistic picture-book tale, sublimely illustrated by Pitz in b&w and heartbreakingly delicate watercolors.
