Enjoy these four books by Don Blanding, who is a poet, author, soldier of fortune and vagabond.
Book One: "Vagabond's House"
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: "Songs of the Seven Senses"
This is the 19th printing. Copyright 1946.
Excerpt from jacket: "This new volume, written and illustrated by the versatile pen of Don Blanding plunges still further into that mad, colorful, singing world of dreams and far-off places which was created by the author's earlier Vagabond's House. In it, he finds that songs of the ordinary five sense are insufficient to express his joy of living and he adds a sixth sense, the awareness of gods and a seventh, nonsense."
Book Three: "Joy Is An Inside Job"
Excerpt from "Reluctant Author" section: "I didn't have the idea od doing this book. The idea had me. The idea was like an amorous octopus. If I got loose from seven tentacles I found that the eighth one had me by the wrist, ankle or neck. I knew how the Laocoon boys felt."
Book Four: "Let Us Dream"
This is a signed copy. Copyright 1941.
Excerpt from book: "A handful of memories, A cupful of sorrow, A flagon of happiness, Faith in tomorrow, A measure of taking, A measure of giving, A curious jumble, This business of living."
