Steinbeck, a skilled and famous writer and Robert Capa an equally well-known photographer, traveled the back roads and villages throughout the USSR shortly after the end of WW II presenting a vivid word and photographic account of the life and opinions of everyday citizens of the Soviet Union.
A very nice hardcover 1st edition, in an unclipped pictorial DJ missing small pieces at top and bottom of spine, showing children guiding cows and goats down a dirt country road, worn along edges. Seldom found with Dust Jacket. 220 pp.
A great choice for a Steinbeck fan, or anyone with an interest in the Cold War or Soviet Union.
