Question Looking for: The Singing Boones by Dale White

The Singing Boones by Dale White is a young adults book, that I loved and read many times when I was in junior high in the 1970s. I was telling my niece about it, and can't find a copy of it anywhere. I'd love to find the ebook (her preference), but would love to hold my old friend in any format.

Another favorite was The Faraway Lurs by Harry Behn. I ordered a hard copy from Amazon, but would like to find it in ebook for my niece.

Can anyone give me some help with this?

Thank you, Apache, for taking the time to search and get back to me.

An option would be to buy the paper book and use a service like " 1 dollar scan" to have it converted to an ebook.

Shows copies held at a small number of US libraries. There is no ebook version and it seems was published in 1957. I can't see any sign of a reprint.

A Google search shows some links. It seems, for instance, that Alibris have it starting from $180!

Harry's suggestion of a scanning service to produce an ebook is one I would normally endorse, but in this case it seems that a paper copy is very rare. Even if you were able to obtain one it would be a shame to have it destroyed in the scanning process. A Czur scanner would be a very good option if you can get access to one, or a non-destructive scan service (which would be more expensive).
