Mark Ristau took a giant leap of faith when he left his career of 20 years as a corporate attorney to tell a story that had burned inside him for most of his life. Selling his house and most of his personal belongings in late 2011, he packed his car and migrated from Minnesota to Southwest Florida.

We, at Inklings, have recently come across a rare book, called Hell, I Was There! by Elmer Keith. Did you know that it was the 21st-most searched-for out-of-print book in the world in 2015? And only available for outrageous prices online? Well, one of our booksellers came across a copy in great condition and now we're selling it at Inkings for $29.95!
Here's a brief review: "This is one of the greatest "look back" books ever written -- it's a glimpse into the old West before it was fully civilized. His hunting adventures and his heroic true tale of surviving and recovering from a traumatic wound in a fire are both awe-inspiring. A fantastic book."
