Does anyone know where to find a paper copy of the Atkinson/Piche Bugaboos guide?

Their website says the book is currently out of print and a new one is coming but not till 2017. After searching the internet most places that "have" the book are out of stock and are UK shops/websites. Finding something in the states would be preferable for shipping costs.

There is a .pdf "preview" of the new book but its obviously not complete and I'm not sure what parts of the info have or haven't been updated.

After months of searching I eventually came to the conclusion the only place to find the book is in the Kaine hut.

I could only find it in Canada last year when I bought it. With shipping and foreign transaction fees I ended up paying like $55 for it. I can look up the info of where I got it if youre willing to pay that much, otherwise i wont go through the trouble.

Also, in regards to the book being at the kane hut, there werent copies for sale when I was there last june. There was a copy to remain in the hut for people to look at but that was all.

Is this one any good? It only gets one star so I'm assuming no.

The Mountaineer in Keene Valley NY has a couple copies as of last summer. Give them a call...

I guess this should be added to the "great online deals" thread. Jesus what a joke.

Ask the For Sale/For Free/Want to Buy forum. I got one there for $12, I think.
