About This Item

Chicago: Contemporary Books, Inc. BOOK: Spine Bumped; Light Shelf Rub to Boards; Edges Lightly Soiled. DUST JACKET: Previous Owner Markings (Price Clipped); Lightly Creased; Lightly Chipped; Moderate Yellowing Due to Age; Slight Fading to Spine Portion Due to Sun Exposure; In Archival Quality Jacket Cover. The incredible true story of the hijacking, escape, and years of hiding. SYNOPSIS: As the first successful hijacker of an American airliner, D. B. Cooper became a national legend. Here is the true chronicle of D. B. Cooper, the legendary hijacking, and what happened to him afterward. This astonishing and extraordinarily gripping account finally brings to light the entire story. It began several months after the hijacking, when Cooper wrote to author Max Gunther, offering to collaborate on a book; then, apprehensive, Cooper backed off. Ten years later, "Clara," the woman who helped Cooper escape and who lived with him afterward, contacted Gunther and told him the whole story, supplying details that only she and Cooper could have known. In this incredible and fascinating account, we learn: of the trivial, overheard remark that gave Cooper the idea; of the entire drama of the hijacking, as D. B. himself experienced it; how Cooper's plan almost failed as a result of a chocolate bar, an apple, and a raccoon; how close he came to being caught--once by his wife and once by a suspicious employer; what Cooper really looked like; how he lived after the hijacking--and what became of him. Author Max Gunther took Clara's story and checked it against known facts, talking to everyone involved in the case. Gunther tells of: the dogged FBI agent for whom the case became an obsession; the massive manhunt for Cooper; the mix-up with parachutes that could have cost Cooper his life. This powerfully suspenseful true-crime story is a fascinating and compelling read. - and - D.B. Cooper What Really Happened is the powerfully suspenseful true story of D. B. Cooper's daring crime and life as a fugitive. Author Max Gunther chronicles in gripping detail the events leading up to the hijacking, the elaborate planning and execution of the crime, and the new life Cooper led with the woman who aided his escape. This extraordinary account is investigative reporting at its best. Max Gunther is a former editor for Business Week, Time, and True magazines. His articles have appeared in most major magazines. His books include The Split-Level Trap and The Luck Factor.. Hard Cover. Fine/Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

We realize that the packaging and shipping of your purchase is an important aspect of your order. You have spent time carefully selecting which copy of a book to purchase (Thank you for choosing ours!), often based on its described condition. Bearing this in mind, we carefully package your purchase using:

cardboard boxes or cardboard shipping wraps
cardboard wrap in a Poly Mailer
bubble wrap
foam wrap
air bags
paper fill

While we often re-use shipping materials, we only do so with clean materials that are worthy of the job. We believe in the second "R" in "Reduce, Re-use, Recycle" when it comes to shipping, but only if it does not compromise your purchase.

Choosing the most appropriate materials suited to your purchase, we package up your parcel, taking the time to do everything we can to ensure its safe and secure delivery to you. Attention is paid to protecting corners and boards of hardcover books and ensuring that paperback books cannot be curled or folded while in transit. To ensure that no moisture damage occurs while in transit, we make sure that a plastic, protective barrier is a part of your package, either by using a Poly Mailer or by plastic bagging/wrapping your book(s) if a cardboard box is to be used for shipping. No loose edges or flaps are left on the outside of packages to ensure smooth flow and safe journey through postal system sorting and scanning equipment. An Invoice and Packing Slip are always safely enclosed with your book(s), so that should an unfortunate incident occur to exterior labelling and/or packaging, postal employees can identify the rightful owner of the contents and complete delivery. We try to think of everything!

We then choose one of the various shipping services offered by Canada Post to meet your chosen shipping timeframe. While not all services include a Tracking Number, if the one that we choose to use does, we enter this number into the Order Details and/or email our customers this information, so that its delivery progress can be monitored, if customers choose to do so. Packages that are shipped including a Tracking Number also include Insurance. If we choose to ship a package using a service that does not include a Tracking Number and Insurance, it is only when it is not economically feasible to do otherwise.

If you have any special requests regarding packaging and shipping, please just let us know. We want to work with you to ensure complete purchase satisfaction.

About Fully Booked

For a good portion of the 1990's, our family was interested in the idea of entering the used book business. We are all avid readers, book lovers, and book collectors who cannot pass a bookstore without popping in. Family trips to the library and our local used bookstore were a regularity while growing up. With each of us having interests in different genres (with a little overlapping here and there), we cover a lot of bases. The thought of having a store of our own was appealing, and the hunt was on - both for stock and a location.
We thought to combine under one roof many different things that would appeal to readers and book lovers. Not only used books, but some new items as well. Bookmarks (to ward off dog-eared pages), bookends (to keep those out-of-control collections under control), bookplates (to label books on the "Can I borrow that?" circuit to ensure that they always found their way home), book repair tape (to lend a helping hand to collectors with tattered favourites in their collections), and so on. With an interest in book-themed knick knacks as well, we had two sides to our would-be business: books and knick-knacks. Hence the business was born.
In the early part of 1998 we bought a commercial property, and in the summer we first opened our doors in a storefront in Uxbridge, Ontario, Canada. With start-up stock consisting of a garage full of books hand-picked for just such a venture that we purchased from someone who changed their plans, we were in business.
For several years we operated in this storefront, growing our business and learning about the industry and the backbone of it - the customers. It was very satisfying to be present at the end of someone's book quest, as we were quite often. Many a time we heard shouts of joy from somewhere in the shop as customers happened upon just what they'd been looking for (oftentimes for quite a while). At other times, people would approach us with bits and pieces of information that they remembered from long ago favourites in hopes that we could at least help them come up with an author or title to help in their search, which we often times did, with the book in hand. And when we couldn't come up with anything on our own, we would pick the brains of other customers in conversation, or turn to the internet for help for them. For us, quality and selection of stock go hand-in-hand with customer service. One isn't much good without the other.
But times, people, places, and lives change and after several years in our storefront we made a change of our own - in 2004 we relocated to the internet. Now a home-based business in Oshawa, Ontario, Canada, we are gradually bringing our inventory online here.
We carry used paperbacks, hardbacks, and magazines for both adults and children. We have thousands upon thousands of books that are not yet listed for sale on the internet, but are gradually making their way there.Fully Booked sells on Biblio.com, as well as on other online venues: abebooks.com (as Past Pages), alibris.com (under Lisa Van Munster), amazon.ca (as resurrectedreads), Etsy.com (as OutOfOurHands), and from time to time on ebay.ca (as littleredreadinghood or thebigbadbookseller).
