Hardcover with dust jacket, 14 by 21 cm, 127 pp. The hardcover is very good with some light shelf wear to the boards and some faint foxing on the top edge of the textblock; the jacket is very good with some light edge wear, a few tears, and chipping at the head and tail of the spine panel. Based on Paulsen’s late-teen experiences with a carnival and working in the Dakota sugar-beet fields. “His uncle wanted him to stay home and work the farm. But the boy knew there was a world out there he had to see. Yet being a runaway meant you were outside the law - fair game. That's how he got caught on the farm gang. There was no way out, until Tiltawhirl John picked him up and taught him how to be a carnie, how to stay one step ahead of the suckers. But there was one man from the past even T-John couldn't keep ahead of. How could the kid keep him from destroying his future?”
