1963, The Chase Cover

1963 The Chase 1963 The Chase

1963, Richard Unekis' novel The Chase, Cover by Freire Wright.
Two hundred miles of standing corn south of Chicago divide into a grid of gravel roads a mile apart, disparate young criminals and muscle cars, which are now able to out run the economy 6-cylinder sedans driven by police. The novel originally titled "The Chase" was later renamed the "Pursuit" then created into the 1974 cult car chase film "Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry"
starring Peter Fonda and Susan George.

This is a well illustrated cover, which displays the run-around  perfectly.
