There are a lot of copies online and selling between $29 and $80 plus for Capper reprints. Have a look at this site as the best deals are here. Copy and paste the entire section as the blue link just takes you to Abe books and not the specific book.

Do you mean Hearts of Gold by J T Salmond

This one Graeme?? :cowboy_hat_face:

yes that was the one I was thinking of though to be honest never thought much of it. A good beginners book I guess but not detailed. I was wondering if that was the one he was thinking of? There are better ones.

I agree. :cowboy_hat_face:

Hey your not supposed to agree with me like that - ever seen a sunset like this?

Yes, I was standing next to you. LOL :joy:

Have you ever seen a sunrise like this?

How about a sunset like this.
