I have a loose leaf copy of The Zike Book ( dated 1965 ) By Harry Virgle Smith That i have scanned into my computer and could e-mail anyone who is interested! I am also currently editing a Microsoft Word Doc. of the same Book, but it is a long process!
The book was aquired by my wife's sister Sue several years ago from a lady in southern Illinois, the copy has several hand writtened notations by somebody!
I hope this helps anyone working on the Zike Tree, anyone can e-mail me at email@example.com with any questions
