About this Item

Very nice clean, attractive book. Some fading to gilt at face, but still quite readable. Pages pristine with small bit of light staining to exterior bottom edge. SIGNED on front free endpaper by author thus, "Greetings to one who has wandered from his home-land! Jasamyn S. Garrett" A heavily researched history in verse of the Bootheel area of Missouri which includes all of the New Madrid District of the Louisana Purchase with the exception of the area which was organized into Arkansas County and then into the Arkansas Territory before Missouri became a state. The appendix is especially noteworthy, as it contains facsimile copies of the Francois Lesieur Papers, found during the demolition of an old house in Madrid around the time the author was writing. Lesieur established the first trading posts in New Madrid and Petite Prairie. Book measures 8"x10-3/4", is illustrated (maps too) and has 244 pages. Bookseller Inventory # 24303

Store Description

Garrison House Books has maintained an on-line presence since 1997. We are a general interest used, rare, and out-of-print bookstore based in the quaint Victorian town of Medina, Ohio. American history, children's books and ephemera (the history of the people) intrigue us most, but we buy and maintain books in all categories. We are Tess and Eric Kindig, married forever, and passionate about books, bookselling and readers. Tess has been a newspaper reporter, magazine writer, and public relations director, and is still a working author with 13 published books to her credit. Eric owns Log Cabin Inc. in Lodi, Ohio, an 8,000-plus square foot retail establishment specializing in historical books and reenactment accoutrements. In addition to his remarkable ability to schlep large piles of books from hither to yon, Eric brings over 30 years of retail experience to this endeavor! Also, joining our staff are our beloved bookshop kitties -- Miss Lil and Mickey. The former provides gentility and elan, and the latter (who is basically a street thug) provides comic relief. We believe that books are treasures, not commodities, and that readers are individuals, not numbers. Our greatest joy is in getting to know you and serving you with grace and good humor. We appreciate your business very much!
