Item Description

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

Book One: "Vagabond's House"

Copyright 1936.

Excerpt from preface: "... Ready to face that last dim misted trail, When eager eyes and pliant muscles fail, Thinking of Death as just another place to go, Another road to walk, another land to know."

Book Two: "Drifter's Gold"

This book is a signed copy. Copyright 1939.

Excerpt from book: "I've squandered the gold that is minted coins, With carefree and spendthrift hands, Buying folly and sorrow and joy, On the byways of many lands. But the fold that is minted from memories, That I've gleaned from the world's far ends, I've hoarded and saved against the day, When I could share it friends."

Book Three: "Memory Room"

This book is autographed. Copyright 1935.

Excerpt from book: "Penny waster, Memory miser, Who can say, My way's not wiser?"
