I have a broad general inventory, including a large section of books on the West and Southwest, and books by and about American Indians.
I have been an English teacher and a librarian, and now a bookseller since 1998. I was trained by an old time bookseller and have attended the Colorado Antiquarian Book Seminar. I live on ten acres in high desert country in a remote corner of northeastern California - in a county with no parking meters or stop lights and only one bookstore. So I travel to buy books, attend book fairs, and stay in touch with the greater book buying and selling world.
