Item Description

Enjoy these two books by Don Blanding, one of America's best loved poets.

Book One: "Floridays"

This book is the 11th printing. Copyright 1948.

Excerpt from jacket: "With his unusual chameleon-like gift of absorbing the sensuous impressions of the beauty spots of the world, Don Blanding, noted author, artist and poet, has drawn vivid pictures in words and in pen of Florida, his newest home."

Book Two: "Mostly California"

This book is autographed by Don Blanding. Copyright 1948.

Excerpt from jacket: "Mostly California is entirely Blanding in its colorful presentation, by drawings and verse, of California, the Land of Gold; of the Padres and the Forty-niners; of the Magic of the mountains and deserts and redwoods; of the fabulous cities and towns; and of Hollywood with its glittering stars. Here is Don Blanding in an amazing blend of vivid impressions — the laughter, tragedy and comedy of the highways and byways, of the wide roads and the forgotten side roads he knows so well."
