   I have found two Independent book stores where you can purchase Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History (on demand). They deserve your patronage:

* SKYLIGHT BOOKS –  According to their website:

Skylight_MG_8791We’re a general bookstore serving such historic L.A. neighborhoods as Hollywood, Los Feliz, Silver Lake, and Echo Park; located in the shadow of Griffith Park and its iconic Observatory, and surrounded by the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright, R.M. Schindler, and Richard Neutra. Our eclectic clientele, including many local artists, musicians, writers, and scholars, challenges us to provide the cutting edge of culture including the best in literary fiction, books on music, art, film and theatre, Los Angeles regional culture and history, graphic literature, children’s books, political theory, and more.

* ST HELENS new_storefrontST. HELEN’S BOOK SHOP – Located at the site of one of the most famous active volcanos on the West Coast, this store sells items that actually celebrate Hollywood’s story. According to their website:

Lots of books.  And what we don’t have on hand, we’re more than happy to order.  We can get pretty much any book that’s still in print. From time to time, we end up with rare and/or unusual books in the store, and we’ll list them here for you.

We’re located at 2149 Columbia Blvd in St. Helens, OR, next to Houlton Bakery across from Sunshine Pizza.

Vancouver named the mountain for British diplomat Alleyne Fitzherbert, 1st Baron St Helens on October 20, 1792, as it came into view when the Discovery passed into the mouth of the Columbia River.

   In 1980, Mount St. Helens erupted, and became the deadliest and most economically destructive volcanic event in the history of the U.S. 57 people were killed; 250 homes, 47 bridges, 15 miles of railways, and 185 miles of highway were destroyed. The Eruption of Mount St. Helens was a popular documentary that chronicled the destructive event.
