Thanks for forwarding that Ken.
 

For those that may be interested in a collection of some amazing logging images and anecdotes,
this will certainly be a great book for the collection. 

The other really nice thing about it being,
that all proceeds go towards a great cause. 

See some more info on the flyer below.


Cheers,

Dan Pickard.

Hi,

Thanks for posting the information about Mark Fry's book. 


Mark's Tasmanian articles were the reason I started my subscription,

to 'Narrow Gauge Downunder' back in Summer / Autumn 2000. 

My subscription continues to this day.


I will have to order this book and a second copy for my local train club library.

Please note, this is not an ordering process, just yet.


This is an expression of interest request from Mark Fry (the author),

as they are trying to get a fairly accurate printing volume established (as far as hard cover vs soft cover options),

for the reason that the proceeds are towards a kids cancer charity.


So they want to try and get the demand right, and maximise the donation that will result in the end

(as opposed to being stuck with a heap of the wrong style of book, that generates no funds for the charity)


Sorry if that caused any confusion.


Cheers,

Dan Pickard

Just adding to this announcement.


I can now show the cover-artwork for this forthcoming book,

which is a pretty fair representation of what the rest of the book contents will hold.  


Keen readers will note . . . 'Volume 1'  ;)


Cheers,

Dan Pickard

Received my copy today.


When you add in $57.23 Aus for postage to the US, it isn't a cheap book.

But from what I can see it is a bargain!!


The plans, the number of photos, critters galore and the QUALITY.

It is a book for a cold winter night,  a comfortable chair, and a "wee dram" of single malt.

Highest recommendation.


If logging is your thing, it is a MUST HAVE.

If your interests aren't specifically logging, you probably will still think this book is great.

And the proceeds go to help unfortunate kids.


Herb
