I know this is a long shot, but I want/need the series of  books by Joy Hakim called "A History of US".

There are 10 or 11 books in all, but it's only the first 3 that I REALLY want. 

Anyone?  I'm willing to pay a credit for each, or even extra credits to help cover shipping if needed.  I'm a boxer, too, if that helps any.

Thanks!

Cindy

Just so you know, there are 10 books in the series.  The 11th is the index.  :-)  We are using the series this year and next, but I'm not parting with mine - sorry!  We're just starting book 2.

I found out that the library in the town we live in has the whole set in their reference section, as well as a set that can be checked out.  Also the town that I work in (just a few minutes away and in the same library system, so I can use my card there) also has a set that can be checked out.  I was just planning to use them as a reference, so I think we'll be fine using the library ones.

Thanks so much!  It shows that the episodes won't be broadcast in my area soon, but there are still some great resources on the website.
