Four Winds Indian Books in York offers the largest collection of Native American Indian books in the world. Over 2,000 titles of Native American book are kept in stock.
Lois Klingsporn is the owner of Four Winds Indian Books, "Oh, when people come in here they'll come in and they'll go, 'Ohhhh, ohhhh,' they just can't believe we have this many books in one place."
Lois' father worked as an Indian missionary, "My dad started it in '86 when he was 80 for a little something to do when he retired and by '92 it was more than he wanted to do because he found a niche that nobody was in."
Lois took over Four Winds in 1993 and since her main clients are mainly schools and libraries throughout the United States and Canada, many educational books for teachers of Indian children are offered, "They can order them all from one place."
Although the store is primarily a mail-order business, the doors are warehouse are always open to anyone lucky enough to discover this jewel in downtown Our Town York.
