    The Enchanted Island of Yew
    I found this book when I was in my teenage picking days. I found it at an abandoned house along the highway in Wisconsin. The property was in severe shape and the house had no windows or doors on it. So I found the property owner who lived down the road. He gave me permission to search the property and only asked that I respect it. ( Always respect a potential sellers' wishes) So, I only found 2 books that were obviously old and worth taking. This one is my favorite. The binding is seperating but still is in great condition. The property owner gave the items away because he didn't want them, but appreciated the fact that I was so young and cared so much about history related items. A wonderful book with great value today.
