About this Item

Book is very clean and tightly bound. Former owner's name written on front free endpaper for which we will provide a brand new bookplate to use at buyer's discretion. Jacket shows sunning to spine, but no tears or chips and is very handsome in brand new mylar cover. An interesting look at the Buid society which has always chosen to maintain its own beliefs and practices rather than adopt those from the low country. What stands out are their belief in equality among the sexes and their high rate of marriage, divorce and remarriage which is considered good. Book has 240 pages including index.

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!
