Nancy Drew - The Secret at Shadow Ranch by Carolyn Keene

1st Edition

Hardcover. Condition: Very Good, Dust Jacket; Fair/Good-. 1931. Grosset & Dunlap. 1st Edition.

In this book, you are introduced to Nancy's best friends, Elizabeth "Bess" Marvin and George Fayne, complete opposites. George is a brave, sporty tomboy, while Bess is a girly, shopping, scaredycat. One of Bess and George's cousins, Alice Regor, traveled with Nancy to their Aunt and Uncle's ranch in Arizona where the cousins' aunt attempts to keep up a ranch she received as payment of a debt. Nancy reunites Alice with her long-lost artist father, who is suffering from amnesia. She also uncovers the mystery behind why an old mountain woman is guardian of a beautiful young girl, all the while enjoying mountain life, including horseback riding, a flash flood, being lost in the mountains overnight, and a dangerous mountain lion.

Book is in good condition, with light edgewear. Spine slightly cocked, but well bound and interior is clean. Dust Jacket has a number of small chips and tears, but is largely intact.
