Left handed crocheter

Could anyone or does anyone have a left handed crochet learning book ?
Could anyone teach a left hander how to crochet? I already know the basic
stitch but that's it.
Thanks in advance
Being lefty I was doing these patterns for Xmas and no matter how I tried I couldn't do the stitch. As in my art when you need to see a mistake but can't view it looking at it dead on, hold the pattern up to a mirror, because all left-handed crocheting is doing right-handed backwards. Finally I got out my pattern books and substituted it for another stitch.
My grandmother was right-handed and how I learn was to sit facing her and watching her do the stitches.
The Best library to have for lefty-handed people is the stitch books that show the picture of the stitches in them in case you need to hold it up to a mirror and read it that way....
