I started reading The Silver Birch Series on recommendation from a close friend in the 1980's - when it was extremely difficult to locate any of the books in the series. The books were not sold in bookstores (particularly when Spiritual books were found in the "Occult' section of books stores at the time) if they had them at all. I was reading borrowed Silver Birch books that were tissue thin and disintegrating as I read each page. We are talking about the 80's when there were no personal computers and the internet so we relied on snail mail to do book searches. I eventually found a library in one of our Canadian city's libraries that lent me the books that I borrowed through the mail - and then had to send them back. This is a real treat to be able to purchase this series today and keep a personal copy for my own personal library. I am enjoying revisiting all the timeless wisdom shared by Silver Birch as channelled through Maurice Barbanell all those many years ago. The information is timeless whether you read it in the 1940's, 1980's or today.
