Lenski, Lois.  
Strawberry Girl.

Publisher: Philadelphia: Lippincott, 1945..
First Edition Octavo in green cloth stamped in yellow. [192] pages illustrated in black and white. Winner of the 1946 Newbery Award. The best of the books in a series of books telling a regional story of growing up with hardships. This one tells the story of a girl in the turn of the century frontier of Florida populated by Crackers (apparently before the term became derisive). Light glue toning to the endpapers, very light extremity wear. The jacket is price clipped (a bit rough on the edges of the removal), light soiling and toning, about a square inch missing at top right front panel, some minor loss of material at lower tips and foot of spine, a one inch tear at front top spine fold. Still, the flaws are all relatively inconsequential. Hardcover Hardcover Very Good+ in Good + Dustjacket
