Elisabeth, Shan, and other UK LBHA members --
I don't mind being a "drop box" for you on e-Bay purchases that won't ship to the UK. I've done it for a French member for a long time. You can have things sent to you in care of me, and I'll send it along to you. I don't mind as long as it isn't anything illegal!
Shan -- Writing you a note is on my to-do list. I haven't forgotten your last question and have good news for you. Give me a few days to get caught up on other things (like the work that actually pays me), and I'll be in touch.
Shan -- I got mine from a company called El Pinarillo Books, in Streatham (familiar territory?!). Their website is elpinarillobooks.com. Not sure if they've got other copies, but they may well have. There do seem to be plenty around, which is good news! So if they've sold out, I'd suggest just doing a Google search, which is how I found my copy; it came up with loads of possibles.
Has anyone ever heard of the book, "Legacy, The Battle of the Little Big Horn," by Ward Garing?
I have a book titled 'Legacy - New Perspectives on the Battle of the Little Bighorn', edited by Charles Rankin. Published by the Montana Historical Society Press. It's a collection of essays given at the proceedings of the Little Bighorn Legacy Symposium, held in Billings, Montana, August 3-6, 1994.
