The Museum Store also has an extensive inventory of Sherman County out-of-print books for sale. Three titles available are by Giles L.

A special gift for the history buff would be The History of the Columbia River Valley from The Dalles to the Sea, a three-volume set compiled by Fred Lockley, 1928.

The Museum Store offers twenty years of local history and records in the historical anthology titled Sherman County: For The Record. You can purchase individual issues of Sherman County: For The Record or you can buy the complete set at a special holiday price.
