Commerce of the Prairies

The Plains FolkTM Bookstore

You can order personal copies of books by the authors of Plains FolkTM here. We're not geared up for credit card sales, but we can fill orders one of two ways. The first way is for you to look at this page and at the order form, decide what you want, and send us an e-mail giving your order, along with your mailing and billing address. Then we'll mail out your order, along with a statement, and you can send us a check. Also, let us know if you would like the book or books inscribed by the author or authors to anyone. Here's the e-mail address.

The second way to order books is to print out our order form, indicate your wishes on the hard copy, and mail it, along with your check (payable to "Plains Folk"), to the address indicated. The flat prices include appropriate sales tax. We are both happy and sorry to say that those two cult classics, Jim's The Cattle Guard and Tom's Custom Combining on the Great Plains, have sold out of print. All right then, here's what we have for sale. Notice that you can click on a title to get information about the book.
