Well,the Bucket Fund story yesterday didn’t do so well for the mares, and that makes me sad. So today I have gathered for sale the last of my horse books (and other things) to boost the Bucket Fund for these mare/foal pairs!
If you missed yesterday’s story about the BLM elder mares with brand new babies at their sides that have the opportunity to travel to freedom at Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary if we can get them there, click here to read that post.
BOOK BONANZA (and other things) to benefit these mares and their foals!
(All prices include shipping within the United States. For Canada, I will invoice accordingly.)
–This first list includes my personal books that I’ve acquired over the years… I have some special books here.
1) The Complete Far Side 1980-1994 (2 VOLUME SET) 1st (first) edition by Gary Larson published by Andrews McMeel Publishing… Oct 1, 2002, by Gary Larson
The prices on Amazon were all over on this boxed set averaging around $155 – $255.
I purchased this brand new and it has been in storage for all these years. The set is in very nice condition. I will sell for $125.
2) Letters To Strongheart Paperback – September 10, 2010 by J. Allen Boone
This first edition, out of print book is very hard to find… There are reprints, but not this version with this cover. My copy is almost perfect but it does have a bend in the cover. I saw this listed anywhere from $52 – $137. You can get the facsimile reprint for $22.
If you don’t know the story, basically, it is a compilation of heartfelt letters from the author to the famous movie dog, Strongheart. J. Allen Boone took care of the dog for a time and was so overwhelmed by the dog’s demeanor and presence, that he felt compelled to write this lovely memoir. I LOVED this book.
SOLD, THANK YOU, LISA!
