Only the second copy I have ever laid eyes on (the other being the Ron Cohen copy at LAC). It has always been a puzzle to me why Pitman published this book. They were mainly a technical publisher though they did have a general line at the time, but were not known for their fiction. Her first published book and ARGUABLY THE MOST FAMOUS CANADIAN BOOK.
