A nice association copy from the personal collection of poet William Stafford, inscribed to him by Lueders on the half-title page: "To Bill Stafford: | -- for trying out this book, | -- for liking it, | -- for being so very generous in saying so -- | with appreciation and gratitutde, | Ed Lueders | 10/14/77". Appropriately, Stafford's blurb for the book is on the front DJ panel: "The Clam Lake Papers is a spiritual sabbatical, a renewal of wonder. It's not like any other book. It's an expedition for finding."
