First edition, first printing hardcover in illustrated yellow cloth boards with a red illustration of a Native American and his horse on frt cover, backstrip ends are bumped but not rubbed and have matching red titles. Internally, the book is fabulous. Hinge papers are fine, 96 page text is of heavier gauge paper and is clean, has no tears, chips or names. Original, unclipped dust jacket ($2.00) has a repaired chip at the head of frt panel next to the dj flap fold, small chips and color loss at spine ends, triangular chip at head of rear gutter that starts at head of spine and goes round the corner. It is 2" long x 3/4" deep. Lastly, the solid cream colored rear panel of dj shows an abraded area the length of the dj x 1/2" in from the rear flap fore-edge. The rear flap is separated due to these abrasions but still in its proper place due to placement of new mylar on the dj. Spine title on dj is offset, more to the rear board, not perfectly centered. Sounds worse than it looks. An action-packed story of War Paint, a wild pony that roamed the Western prairies in early days. The story takes him from his birth to the time when he is owned by an Indian brave. Paul Brown has told the story in pictures and brief text, and every picture is spirited and full of action. Here is the colt when he first follows his mother on unsteady legs, in his first encounter with a wolf, in later encounters with fire and flood - and finally in the Indian camp.
