Presentation copy, inscribed and signed by the author on the front free endpaper. In full: "For Zenna Higgins. With my warmest and most grateful thanks for all she did to help make my first visit to California such a pleasant and happy one. Thomas Wolfe / Palo Alto, Sept 9, 1935." Zenna Higgins was maid and cook in the home of Dr. Russell Lee, Wolfe's host in the Bay Area. Wolfe's California travels were very important to him; as he noted later in life, "Almost every American, no matter where born, is a Westerner at heart." (See Donald Barth, "Thomas Wolfe's Western Journeys," in Western American Literature, May 1991.)
