Looking for an old book

Long story short, I wanted to see if anyone had or knew where I might find the book " The man who road the thunder" by William Rankin. It's the story of a Marine Corp pilot who ejects above a thunderstorm. Originally written in 1959. My father, retired USAF Pilot, is interested. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance

A good place to find a used book is abebooks.com. They have a huge number of dealers listing there, usually a full range of prices for any given book so you can get the best deal.

Start with Bookfinder. It is a metasearch engine, and searches all of the other search engines for you--Amazon, Abebooks, Alibris, and on. You'll frequently find the same book listed across multiple platforms, with minor price differences and possibly free shipping, and you can avoid getting trapped by one vendor that is listing the book you want for waaay more than it is worth.
