I was fortunate enough to find a copy of Leland W. Thorton’s book on the 11th. I am amazed at the amount of research Mr. Thornton did in putting this book together. I only wish it was in circulation still.
I look forward to sifting through his work and posting my research.
UPDATE: I have spoken recently with Mr. Thornton and an Amazon style EBOOK is in the works. I know this book has been impossible to find in print. I am very much looking forward to the release of the digital version. I will keep the updates coming as I get them.
