Santa Monica: The Lapis Press, (1988). First edition. original brown cloth lettered in gilt. Fine/pictorial dust jacket (fine). Quarto. Illustrated "Jane Hollister Wheelwright has done a very daring thing," author Mary Sarton wrote of this book, "for 'The Ranch Papers' is a work of art relying almost entirely on concrete description ... This is the record of a passionate love affair with the land. She raisers pure description to a kind of meridian where it is burned into the reader's consciousness, never to be forgotten and the reader taken deep into a physical journey will know by the end that is is also a spiritual one." -from the dust jacket.
