I just checked Amazon, and there is a "Scholars" edition available. With the following blurb.

"This work has been selected by scholars as being culturally important, and is part of the knowledge base of civilization as we know it. This work was reproduced from the original artifact, and remains as true to the original work as possible. Therefore, you will see the original copyright references, library stamps (as most of these works have been housed in our most important libraries around the world), and other notations in the work."

Terry,
This is a great story, many thanks. I saw the recent thread over on the Winnipesaukee forum as well....great photos. I found a real nice copy of the magazine on ebay which should arrive any day...
One thing I am curious about, did the trailer have brakes?

Well Terry it has been another two years and I joined this group just so I could ask you when your book is going to come out.

may have found a 43' New Moon 2 bdr model. At least I think it is. The tail of the trailer matches, along with windows and doors. Even has the same broad stripe signature to the New Moon. However the front appears to be like your parent's trailer. Will see later this week.
