12mo - 19 x 13 cm.; 247 pp. Burgundy cloth over boards with gilt lettering on the spine. Copyrighted by the author in 1959, it was not published until the following year. From the dust jacket: "From a seedy, one-man airport in the Northwest lumber country, an obsolete plane, flown by Collier, a pilot who considered himself an obsolete man, takes off with four passengers for a flight out over the mountains. Each of the five - four men and a woman - is burdened by serious personal problems, and each begins as a stranger to the others. Human and mechanical failure combine with a blinding storm to force the plane down in the wilderness from which there can be no escape until winter freezes the surrounding swampland." (Having read a few pages I learn that the pilot has only one eye. The plot thickens.) The book shows very mild wear to the externals (spine tips and board corners) and the text block edges are lightly foxed as are the back end papers. Otherwsie clean with a tight binding. The unclipped dust jacket has some light wear, the back panel is beginning to yellow and the front panels is scuffed that is best seen in reflected light.
