Vendors of The Waterman and Hill Traveller's Companion.
At present (July 2009) there is only one vendor who is carying back issues of The Waterman and Hill Traveller's Companion Nature Almanac. That is The Book Emporium, 303 S Commercial St # 9, Harrisburg, IL 62946-2125, (618) 252-8022
Jim devoted many long and often serendipitous hours to findng outlets for his Almanac. He had the best reception at feed stores and bait shops, due to the information on planting by the signs and the animal activity tables; but of course, none of them are intersted in carrying back issues as that is the part of the Almanac that went out of date from year to year.
Distribution has been further disrupted because, while I didn't go to pieces after Jim's death (well, not for very long), the recasting of my own life has kept me busy enough that I have not made an effort to distrubute back issues except through this website.
However, one of our loyal bookstores built a fire under me, and I hope to be contacting the others during the last half of 2009 to see if they are interested in carrying back issues. Most years are still available. If I miss you, or if you are a new outlet interested in back issues, please contact me.
For old sake's sake, here's Jim's account of his efforts at finding a distributer and self-distribution:
