African Queen ?

I think I know the answer - I've searched high and low - but does anyone know of an ebook of C.S.Forester's "The African Queen" ?

It has always been among my top ten films of all time, and I think I'll have to go the physbook route, but always worth asking......

I read the physical book and it is a great read.
Only some of the Horatio Hornblower series are available, in the US, as ebooks.

I don't think it's available as a legitimate ebook.

BTW, the book's ending is quite different from the movie.

All the "Hornblower" books are available as eBooks in the UK, but "The African Queen" seems not to be, unfortunately.

And with our "shrinking world" I find regionalization for ebooks ridiculous.

Fascinating - I bought a copy from Amazon USA in August 2011 - I checked back (from my order details page) - and it is no longer listed. Perhaps an illegal copy - detected & pulled by Amazon?
