Upper text edge dyed red, showing light soiling. Author Hugh Wiley (1884 - ?) tells the earthy and infinitely human adventures of Wildcat and his lovable goat Lily as they travel west on the Santa Fe Railroad. And, just who is Wildcat? Here's a revealing quote from the optimistic and engaging fellow: "When you 's travellin' heavy on de misery road/ An' yo' back is breakin' wid de misery load/ Jes' figger dat yo' trouble's bound' tp end/ 'cause Lady Luck is waitin' fo' you, 'round de bend". And, political humor? Wildcat asks Backslid Baptist, "How come you so friendly wid dat Democrat letter-writing' boy?" "How come 'Democrat'?" "F'm whut you says he's champion liar ob 'de world. Sounds Democrat to me. Don' make no difference, though --- just so's I gits de job (Wildcat just wants to be hired on by Pullman)". Strong, clean copy. N° de ref. de la librería 000966
