Got them all

Got them all also, leather bound set for $300 in a gun store. Walking Drum is my favorite and it isnt a Western.

The Lost World by Michael Crichton. First book ever bought, I was in 8th grade. Still read it about once a year.

I wonder if tap dancers walk into a room, look at the floor, and think, I'd tap that. I wonder about things.....

That Ironhead is one expensive book for being out of print.

My favorite was Starman Jones by Robert Heinlein. Had piles of books we could order from school for a dime to a quarter. Still have all of them.

Ruark's "The Old Man And The Boy". For my money, Ruark could write circles around Hemingway.

Well, as others have said.
