I've just had a call from the bookshop, Wild Company is out of print, with no indication of any re-prints! :(

It doesn't look as if we are going to get a copy, sorry Kaapsedraai! :?

hilda, that is fine, we just keep searching ... :thumbs_up: I contacted Treasury Booksellers again today and they got 1 copy for me, but cannot locate it as a customer must have moved it. So, let see. :hmz:

Thank you for this link Yoda! Much appreciated! :D

I don't know if I was doing something wrong, but I found a bookshop in Johannesburg, SA, with as copy which I decided to purchase, but, when I saw the postage was more or less the same as the price of the book, I have decided against it. I don't know whether it has something to do with my extra slow Internet yesterday, but I think I shall try again later on. Maybe the postage price got stuck! :lol:

My copy came with an LP/record. No where to play it though.

Hilda, no prob :thumbs_up:

I am as passionate about books on my interests, as my interests themselves. The SO goes mad when she sees anther book being added to the piles of of them everywhere :gflower:
Our bookshelves were filled up years ago.

hilda, via ABE I got the a bookshop in Jhb i.e. Treasury Booksellers and till today, they could not locate the copy they presumably have in stock. I guess the postage will be quite high. :hmz: I am not sure if this is the same place, though...

yoda, :lol: :lol: :lol: I know the feeling. SO reacts that way when I buy another bird ornament - those wooden carved ones - to add to the collection.
The LP/ecord is an interesting one...wonder if the copy I ordered will have one.

If I came across the book in booksellers close by, I will buy them and let you all know, especially for hilda. :thumbs_up:

Great news Goronta :thumbs_up:

I received my copy Friday and read about 2 chapters - great experiences and gives one a view of how it was in the early days. :dance: :dance:

Good news to anyone interested in the book. I located 2 copies of the book when paying a short trip to Kleinmond today. Unfortunately, they are second hand and the LP Record removed in both. So, I bought the 2 copies and anyone interested to obtain from me are welcome to let me know. :hmz:

hilda, the one is on the way - just decide which one R95 or R65. The only difference seems to be that the one got a plastic cover.

The postage seems to be about R25 via ordinary mail with tracking no which need to be added to cover the costs. I am not making any profit from these and just glad to share and help.

Please note that I will be off to Wildernis and Tsitsikamma from 21 - 30 June'13, hence not able to reply.
