The Chariot Of Fire by  Bernard De Voto

The Chariot Of Fire

by Bernard De Voto

First edition. Former owner's small, neat name stamp on top edge of front fly leaf, and the first few pages show light wear to the fore-edges due to having been carelessly opened, else a near fine, clean copy in dust jacket with light wear to the spine ends, corners, and extremities, with a closed tear to the top of the front panel slightly in the channel. The second of four novels set in the West. This story tells us of a riverman, who for a time was the village drunkard, until he "got religion" at a camp meeting. The man and his followers established the CITY OF GOD, where the blind devotion to him rose to such a fevered religious peak that he became acclaimed as the incarnation of GOD himself. Quite a story and uncommon in the dust jacket.
