nui 'umi 'umi...that Bamboo book looks very interesting. I think I have looked at it on line before.

I have a lot of cocktail books so will need to dig through my coffers for some interesting offerings.

In the meantime, here is a wonderful little piece of history about Knott's Berry Farm.
Knott's Preserved: From Boysenberry to Theme Park, the History of Knott's Berry Farm

Filled with more than 200 never-before-seen and rare photos/illustrations (both black & white and color), it is a high-quality publication that is written well (Chris Merritt & Eric Lynxwiler) and designed beautifully (by Amy Inouye). The majority of the book tells the story of Knott's Berry Farm while it was run by the family, with a brief chapter at the end about Cedar Fair, the company who currently runs the theme park. There are plenty of behind-the-scenes stories about the creations of some of the classic attractions at Knott's (The Calico Mine Train, Halloween Haunt, Calico Log Ride, and Knott's Bear-y Tales to name a few) as well as the famous Ghost Town. GREAT PICTURES!!!
