My wife, daughter and I recently went to see my family for the holidays. As we were spending time with my family, my dad pulled out some documents of family history. Personally, family history is not that big of an interest for me, but my ears quickly perked up when my dad told me I had a not-so-distant relative who was also poet, and she was published. Her name was Irene Grace Duffield from Nebraska. And the book she published was entitled “Cosmic Dust: Views of a Lifetime, in Poetry”.
I thought this was pretty cool and wanted to see if the book was available on Amazon. To be honest, I had grave doubts the book would be available. Its an old book, published in 1956 by a little known poet. So you can imagine my surprise when I found a copy available by an independent seller on Amazon. I immediately bought the copy. After I told my dad, he asked if I could buy him a few copies. I went back on Amazon and there were literally no copies available. I had just bought the last copy!
