Detailed Product Description
New York, Pantheon, 1947, possible first edition. 221 pp. Green cloth hardcover with no dust jacket. Former owner's name and date on FEP plus minor foxing. Near Fine. Neate X300.

A story of the epic struggle of man against nature. A mighty mountain tries to engulf a tiny human being under a mass of 150,000,000 cubic feet of stone, and yet it does not succeed in breaking his body or in destroying his mind, though it comes close. 

The French original was titled Derborence, inspired by the story of a shepherd who survived several months in his cabin buried under a landslide. Translated from the French by Sarah Fisher Scott.
