1931 The Grasshoppers Come
What Our Customers Say...
First Edition, With Dustwrapper
The first edition. Held in the original dustwrapper which is price clipped. The Grasshoppers Come follows the experiences of two men and a woman engaged on a record-breaking long distance air trip. They crash and the pilot is left alone with little food in a desert. Garnett describes his feelings, adventures and sufferings. The flyleaf notes that Garnett's descriptions are with 'precision and detail, and with extraordinary insight into the mind of a man who is at once brave and commonplace.'
