Light shelfwear to edges and covers. Pages tight and clean. Small stains on outside edges. pages. SoftCover Binding. Year: 1977. ISBN: 0385127723. This is Hugh Prathers first diary in over 5 years. In part, it is a new look at some of the old values-love, courage, gentleness, honesty-and at the problems of friendship and growth. It is an intensely personal book, often written in pain, and because of this the effect on the reader is personal: it brings him back to himself.
