Has anyone used this book, read it, taught from it?
1. Click on the "touchstoned" title in this message.
2. Choose WorldCat from the Quick Links on the right of the page.
3. Click on the appropriate (or only) edition.
4. Once in WorldCat, you can enter your zipcode and it will give you the libraries holding the work sorted by closest to your zipcode.
Doing this tells me that we (UMSL), St. Louis U., Washington U., and all three major public library systems own this already! That reinforces the recommendation.
Next level would be to let LibraryThing permit users' libraries to function similarly within WorldCat (given users permissions, of course). Then we could arrange loans, trades, etc. But, that's going to involve a lot of work (security, confidentiality, etc.) and generate some risk. Still, I'm allowed to be PollyAnnish, no?
Anywho, I'm looking forward to using this book to ferret (today's favorite word) out some good Midwestern lit that I otherwise would have missed.
