This page lists books for sale by Colin MacGregor Stevens. There is a separate page for manuals.
CAUTION: Postage in/from Canada is more expensive than in the USA, but then again, the U.S. dollar is worth about $1.25 Canadian. Prices are in Canadian dollars. In simple terms, if a book is prices at $100, that is about $75 U.S.
Canadian postage is very expensive. A book will cost $19 and up to mail. I recommend buying several at a time to make the best usage of postage costs.
