This edition, with a blue cloth cover and silver imprints on the front cover and spine, is a Collector's Edition, replete with a new introduction to the novel written by Hillerman himself. At the center of the front cover is an inset on-the-bias drawing of Hillerman. Beneath the image is a reproduction of Tony Hillerman's signature, also embossed in silver ink.
