My elderly uncle was a pack rat and kept EVERYTHING. He was a County Agriculture Extension Agent both before and after WW II. I have pamphets relating to Horse Shoeing (1927), Wheat Growing in Eastern Oregon (1922); Austrian Winter Field Peas in Oregon (1931); Measuring Hay in Stacks (1931); a Soil Survey of the Grande Ronde Valley Area in Oregon (1926) and a little book entitled "The People and the Profession" which are stories about extension workers. I found this particularly interesting as it contains many personal stories and a lot of pictures of the time (1900-1920). Finally, there is a more modern publication entitled "Wallowa Valley Barn Tour". It was published in 2000, but contains pictures and history of barns and homes in So. Oregon.

If anyone would like to have these, I would be happy to include them as freebies with any order of 2 paperbacks off my shelf. That order will cover the postage on both the paperbacks and the additional materials.

If interested, PM me before ordering books, to make sure the items are still available.

Thanks.
