Description: Bidders will note that lot(s) with very low Staring Bids, i. e. $1-$5, should in no way see the Starting Bid of $1-$5 as the Book Barn’s judgment on the value of the item(s) contained in the lot(s). We have been in the Used/OP book business for 30+ years & have a LOT of inventory, with more piling up weekly. (Sometimes it seems to us that books breed at night, so there are always more of them over time!) There is NO reserve on these lots. These low Starting Bid lot(s) are meant to lower our inventory by providing bidders the opportunity to buy material at a low prices—we call it the "Eek" price; as in "Eek! That’s all it sold for?"

Armed with a private pilot’s license, she joined the Air Transport Auxiliary and was soon ferrying planes and pilots for the RAF. Her memoir describes those days in thrilling detail. After the Normandy invasion, when women pilots were barred from delivering planes to the combat zones on the continent, she joined a counter-intelligence branch of the, then new, OSS (Office of Strategic Services) and ran spy networks in France.
