I had to look that one up.  For a moment I thought we were venturing into Dungeons & Dragons territory.    strange.gif

Nice score!  (puts my Dieties & Demigods book to shame)  embarassedlaugh.gif

Goats,
SCORE!  It was still there, unfortunately not a first edition which would have been 1962, this one is a 1980 7th printing but in pretty good condition.  We'll have to work out a hand off to get it to you or maybe you need to head East and do some desert hikes with us some weekend soon?

Way to go, MC!  THANK YOU!  Just let me know when you're going on your next dessert hike and I'll drive over and join ya.

Let's see, do I need to add rattlesnake anti-venom to my first aid kit first?  hockeygrin.gif  It's been forever since I hiked in eastern WA.   This is gonna be exciting.  up.gif

Yep, U-dist Half Price books.  Funny thing is the Blahview Half Price books has a copy for $50.   eek.gif

That book has some great old photos too.

It got me all charged up to go see the place back in the late 70s when I briefly lived in Vancouver.

Today I walked into Couth Buzzard up on Greenwood and 73rd (by the Ken's Market) as they are closing any day now but they keep getting in new books and what should I find for a total (TOTAL) of 8.95?

Teanaway Country-almost perfect with it's original receipt from Swallows Nest in 1989
Northwest Ski Trails - PRISTINE 1st edition  1968 GORGEOUS PHOTOS
Flora of Mount Rainier National Park  1947 Pristine first edition
and a little Mountain Loop National Scenic Byway Pamphlet from 1994

But get yourselves up there.  There's more books for all over the N.W. and everything is 30% off right now.

Good for you HJT.  I found a 1971 100 hikes at the Goodwill the other day.

That book is great for showing some old sekrit trails and the photos on the extra large pages are so cool.

Found a copy of this (slightly different cover) for $10 today.
You can just click this link to see the whole book.
Tons of photos from 1910 plus a nice little topo map in the back of the book.
