Let us know what you find!
Mine ain't going anywhere. A Russell owner friend gave it to me years ago. Thought I recognized that name (Jack? I asked myself) and went to find it. Yep.

It's a darn neat book, with tons of pics. I pored over it relentlessly when I was a kid. Just beware of quoting much of it for facts, as there are TONS of factual errors in it. Still fun reading, though.
