About this Item

Lovely book -- very clean and nice with pristine pages. Only real fault is a small bit of chipping to upper back corner which is nearly invisible in mylar because the white liner is almost the same color as the dustjacket. SIGNED and inscribed by author on title page thus, "To ----. best wishes and good luck. Mary Ellen Ester May 30, 1998." She also signed a small card laid-in with a train stamp on one side and a sticker showing a train and the title of the book on the other.The author, an Ohioan, grew up in a family in which many of the men devoted their lives to the railroad until finally the Golden Age of locomotives ended and they no longer planned both small events and large around the schedule of the trains. Here she tells this uniquely American story in a novel of the railroads and the people who helped them prosper. 311 pages. Bookseller Inventory # 20548

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!
