My first book, John Bidwell: The Adventurous Life of a California Pioneer, has been reprinted. The initial print run was 1000 copies. All are gone, except for those that wait to be sold on store shelves.
The book is published by the Association for Northern California Historical Research. When we were first talking about publishing, I asked Heather Lyon, of Lyon Books, how many copies she thought we should print. She said one thousand, and told me that we could sell that many in four or five years.
Well, it’s been six years, but not a bad prediction, and I appreciate the support Heather gave me on this project. Likewise I appreciate all my readers and all of you who have taken an interest.
There are no changes to this second printing, except that now there is a price on the back cover. Previously there was no price indicated. The price is $19.95, the same as it has been all along.
