I believe there were only 500 or so copies printed. Very rare.

Many family histories. First person accounts. Lots of photos.

Do you need some info from this publication? If so, I'll type it in and email it to you.

Will you give a discount on the book if a member here buys it from you?

If you contact the seller and let him know that you're a member of Death-Valley.net, he may be willing to give you a discount. However, since this book is so rare, and there are 14 people who have viewed it, the book may be grabbed up before the listing ends.
