About fine in near fine jacket.
MISTY OF CHINCOTEAGUE
Based on the true story of the charismatic island-dwelling ponies of Virginia and the people who care for them, MISTY OF CHINCOTEAGUE brought attention to the curious lives of the feral horses. The story was adapted into a film in 1961, and the real Misty even attended the premier. This is a particularly nice copy of one of America's favorite horse stories, rare to find in such a nice dust jacket.
