Very good book, Kemp Tolley is a very gifted story teller weaving his own experience into the story. This book makes a very good companion to Richard McKenna's The Sand Pebbles. Not sure why the sellers here want so much money for this book when you can get it for $22.50 or so direct from the publisher as a new book.
