I look forward to getting Mike's books sent out... Over on TalkBaja forums, Ron (Baja Gringo) had a very nice review...

My mail gets in about 3-4 pm. I can get the books sent out the same day if I am not working... and I already did some work this morning. ;D

Loved the book! My wife is reading it now, and is engaged like I was.

A sort of Swiss Family Robinson life, with less resources and no water. Where in the world is that sort of thing possible today?

Thank you for saving these books, and for sharing this amazing story with us.

If you have ever beach camped in the Bay of LA area, you will enjoy Mike's book - lots of history about the local people that are still living and working
in BOLA. I have read it a couple of times already since getting it from Mike years ago.
A must have book for everyone's Baja Book collection!!!!

David - If I can get some I will sell them to my friends for you - I'm heading to Ensenada next wed - maybe we can meet on my way back !!!

For anyone else contemplating writing a book go to iuniverse for print on demand and not have this "leftover" problem!!

Thanks Marv, I do believe that the book is at the museum and Mary Ann has plenty (she picked up from me here in Oceanside). However, if you are talking about north of the border sales, then great... stop on by my house or I will come up to Dana Point. Thank you!

Great to hear Judy... and check with me if you run out, if I still have a case or more...

In Bahia de los Angeles, get them at the museum or if you run into Mary Ann...
