Product description

Kaye & Ward, Surrey, 1983, first edition, hardcover with dust-jacket.

Entrusted by their sick mother with the golden torc, the only possession of their ancient and proud family, Sean and Annie O’Brien set out from an Ireland stricken by the potato famine to find their father in America. This epic story of courage and tenacity tells of their exciting journey from Cork to California protected only by a Dragoon’s scarlet cloak, a shimmering moon shawl, an Irish fiddle and the golden torc itself.

Both book and dust-jacket are in very good condition. Brown boards with gilt lettering to spine. Pages very clean with no inscriptions. Very slight bumping to rear corner. Top edge of text block slightly dusty. Slight edgewear to jacket. Bookseller’s price label has been placed over original price on inner flap.
