ALWAYS THE YOUNG STRANGERS is Sandburg's reminiscence based on his early life in Galesburg, Illinois. It's a nostalgic view of small-town life and American history.

Overall VERY GOOD CONDITION for this SIGNED, clean and tight volume with chipped dust wrapper. It has slight age-toning as is typical for this paper. The dust jacket has rubbing and chipping at points around its edges and icorners. The publisher's top green-stained edges of the paper have a couple of water spots.
