A Pawn:
Great find IRKCOD!! Worth a +1 from me and I'm sure many others. I have a book of a similar name, but just flipping through these web pages give me lots of ideas.

Thanks again and keep up the good work. 8)

Good link IRKCOD.  I gave you a point of karma for it.  I have looked at similar books in the past and really need to add one to our growing homestead library.

I've had a copy of this book for awhile.  You're absolutely right, it's a great find !!!

I created a pdf of this book.

I've uploaded it and can be found here.

Great reference, thanks IRKCOD.

Enjoy :)
