Here is the deal: this book, EARLY KNIVES & BEADED SHEATHS OF THE AMERICAN FRONTIER by John Baldwin, has the same ISBN number as "Mammoth Cheese", a novel. If you order EARLY KNIVES & BEADED SHEATHS OF THE AMERICAN FRONTIER by John Baldwin from any seller you will probably receive "Mammoth Cheese". I'm sure that "Mammoth Cheese" is a very fine novel but I am afraid it doesn't suit my current needs. And, it doesn't appear that anyone is doing anything to fix the problem.
