Signed and dedicated by Don Mitchell to the half-title, "To Joyce, with real thanks! Probably by the time I go running around town with you on my next book. I'll have (1) new shoes, & (2) a nice short haircut, & (3) a tie. But it was fun this way too, wasn't it? Yours Don."
A novel of two acid-dropping, pot-smoking friends hitching along the Californian coast in the 1960s. Dustwrapper blurb, "Gary met Chay on acid—his first trip, her last. It was at a party, at school, back East. This precious night had made her precious. So, later, they'd rapped about the summer ahead, and it seemed worth doing together; California, hitching the coast, working it out with whoever would stop for them."
The book is in very good condition with some tanning and light foxing to the page edges. The dustwrapper is lightly faded to the spine and a little creased, with slight loss to the corners but has not been price-clipped.
