"One October morning Quills was walking leisurely over the mesa. His light-tipped, coarse black coat glistened in the sun. He may have been looking for a tender thorn bush. Or perhaps he was headed for the young piñon trees on Mounty Baldy. Because he was such a dull and quiet beast, nobody ever knew for sure what he would do next!"

The sixth book of the Mesaland Series follows the adventures of Quills, a funny, lazy porcupine who stumbles into fresh trouble every minute. Written by Loyd Tireman, adapted by Evelyn Yrisarri, and beautifully illustrated by Ralph Douglas.

First published between 1943 and 1949 and now available again, the seven books in the Mesaland Series introduce a new generation of young readers to the animals and plants of the great Southwest.
