Harris, Corra

The Happy Pilgrimage with Illustrations.

Houghton Mifflin, Boston. 1927, 310p., illustrated from photographs (mostly of author in her super-rustic Georgia digs) on inserted coated paperstock, first edition cloth boards gilt. Titling a little dim, tiny stain back cover, minute fraying top and tail, sound and free of any markings, a very good copy. Harris briefly touched down in Santa Barbara. According to Wikipedia, "anti-lynching activist Ida B. Wells" called Harris's rationalizations of Southern mob-murders "threadbare" --Harris was apparently defending lynch-murder so as "to protect innocent white women from malevolent black men." Nothing of these matters here, mostly an older woman's good- feeling independence from lovable but erratic males.
