Wanted: Books By John Lair
Dear Editor:
I am interested in acquiring the books Rockcastle Roots and Tales From The Hills by John Lair. These books were published by Polly Howe Publications of Mt. Vernon, Kentucky, ca. 1992-1994, and are now out of print.
At this time I am knee deep in leaves and genealogy.
If anyone has these books available, please contact me with the price.
