A recent correspondent (thanks, Ken) has pointed out that a book published by Canadian publisher Export Publishing Enterprises in 1949 is the first from prolific American author Daoma Winston. In Adam's Country is one of 156 New Stand Library titles Export published between mid 1948 and early 1951. In typical Export fashion the author name is wrong.
Four years later the story, with a revised text, was published by New York's Universal Publishing and Distributing under a new title - The Other Stranger. The cover copy is not correct but Universal may not have known about the obscure Canadian version.
