Like A Leaf Upon the Current Cast


I have no immediate plans to reprint this expensive book,and it does not lend itself to an e-book because of the oversized format and extensive illustrations, sorry.

The occasional copy is available on the internet but let the buyer beware! The 3rd edition is the largest and best version, 100-some pages longer than the first or second editions, so be sure of what you are purchasing.
