Topband: Need Ideas on 160M Antenna

Dear Colleagues,

I'm trying to get on 160M and 80M so I can join all of you!  

I have a wooded lot with several high trees on my property here in Central

I've just put up my first tower after being a ham for 38 years and I'm having
tree work done in prep for the antenna raising.  

For 160M, I'm thinking some kind of inverted L might be most practical here as
the lot is about 150' x 350' with the house in the center. 

I also have about 800' of #12 solid Copper insulated wire I'd like to use. 

Any comments or suggestions for 160M and 80M antennas would be appreciated.

PS Anyone know of a book focusing only on 160/80M antennas?  Other books besides
ARRL handbook and antenna book?
