Sandy Paton Origins: Eggs and Marrowbone (23) RE: Origins: Eggs and Marrowbone 02 Apr 04

Am I ever going to learn to proof-read before I hit the "submit message" button? Western Rivermen, 1763-1861, by the way, is an excellent book, subtitled Ohio and Mississippi Boatmen and the Myth of the Alligator Horse by Michael Allen, Louisiana State University Press, Baton Rouge, 1990. I enjoyed it thoroughly. Now if I could only get hold of a copy of the James Hall book for less than $50! I dream, of course, but I'll keep watching.
    I'm occasionally lucky, though. I've been hoping to find a hardcover copy of The Sand Creek Massacre by Hoig for a long time. The other night on eBay, I bid on a batch of 20 history books, among them being a hardbound first edition of the Hoig book (which often is offered at over $30 on ABE), and got the whole damn bunch for $12.01. My patience has been rewarded!
