The Manatee, Bruff, Nancy
2 Bruff, Nancy The Manatee
New York E. P. Dutton 1945 First Edition; 7th Printing Hardcover Very Good with no dust jacket; Red cloth hardcover with black and yellow decoration and spine titles; clean pages; tight binding 
From a DJ back panel: "This robust, powerful novel is the story of Jabez Folger, savage, romantic man of the sea, with a sinister secret in his past. Against the colourful background of Nantucket in its great whaling days, Nancy Bruff has set this bold, sweeping drama of vibrant love and corrosive hatred. On Jabez Folgerís first whaling voyage he had a dark and evil experience that changed and embittered his whole life. In a rather softened mood, he courted and married Piety, a gentle Quaker girl-then deliberately, viciously, murdered her love. Born of this strange union, conceived in love and hate, their children turned to Flowery Shrine, their half-caste South Sea island servant, for the love and understanding they craved. Folgerís vindictive cruelty brought about his ruin, but in so doing freed him from the evil demon that possessed his soul. The Manatee is a vivid, exciting and compelling tale, written in lusty, vigorous prose, yet with exceptional power and beauty, played out against a setting of sea, sky and fabulous island. "; 12mo 7" - 7Ĺ" tall; 251 pages
