This is Bob Monie from New Orleans, Louisiana.
The booksellers of the world have caught wind that the
supply of Fukuoka's books is limited and the demand
increasing, so prices everywhere are shooting skyhigh.
Generally I research the availability of used books on
what is probably the largest website source--one
covering millions of out of print editions:
Prices for most books on this site are usually quite
low. For instance, you can buy most of Ruth Stout's
"no work" garden books from between $5.00 and $35.00.
You can find nearly everything Henry Thoreau wrote
here from the complete set of the Journals to the
Maine Woods, the Poems, the Letters, the Succession of
Forest Trees and Faith in a Seed, Wild Fruits,
Translations, Early Works, Excursions, Cape Cod, etc.
at very reasonable prices. The same goes for the
writings of L. H. Bailey, Jacob Mittleider and other
But when it comes to Fukuoka books, I afraid you're
going to get scalped everywhere. Here is what I saw
