I would like this book and have been hoping that it would come back into print.

I can't convince myself to pay $200 for it.

Wow. That's horrendously expensive. It's on Amazon for far less, and you can buy it direct from Ashton for less also. http://www.ashtonwaterfowl.net/indian_runner_book.htm

Good luck.

Thanks Helenchook.
I chased this book a few times a year or so back and kept drawing a blank - out of print, not in stock etc.
Suddenly it seems that they are everywhere.
$44 is much more civilized and I have ordered a copy.

I have read the book now.
It was worthwhile for the insight it provides into the breed. There are a lot of black and white illustrations and photographs as would be expected and a small section of colour plates.
Less useful for me was the great amount of detail as to show results. It is very much a history of Runners in the UK. Probably there is little written history of Runners where they were developed which is a pity as I think it would be fascinating.
