High Reaches Nubians

Welcome to GoatKeepers Press. Now found at http://www.goatkeeperspress.com.

Summer Heat

Twice I’ve flirted with sunstroke. The latest was this week. I guess I will have to wear one of the hated hats when I go walking in sunny places. Phooey.

The local drought is eased by two inches of rain. We are still short several inches, but the pastures are greening up.

For a second time I am nattering on about homestead finances, the war between wants and needs. Find out more in the post on my new site www.goatkeeperspress.com.

Plant photographs are accumulating on my camera. Many are plants I’ve found before. But the sunflowers and goldenrods are so hard to identify.

For those interested in my botany project, Dent County Flora, I’m posting a short pdf of some of my completed Dent County Blues pages. Find it on my new website: http:www.goatkeeperspress.com.

Heatstroke and sunstroke are no joke. Do take care in the heat.

I have operated this site for over ten years and have lots of posts saved from High Reaches, Ozark Hills and the science Projects. If you have any one you would like a copy of, get in touch with me. I can send a pdf by email.

Some of the posts seem to be popular as for the PVC gates. The PVC gates went up on the new site last week. Perhaps I will redo making cheese soon. I will eventually redo these posts and put them on the new site.

Thank you to everyone who has made this site a place to visit. Eventually this site address will link directly to the new site and this one will vanish.

Buying Books From My Website

Buying anything on line can be risky. Security is a big issue. I am not knowledgeable enough to provide this. So, book purchases from my site are handled by other secure sites: Amazon, Kindle or Smashwords.

Check out the book pages, read the sample pages. Clicking on the Buy Buttons will take you to the appropriate secure place to purchase the book.

Asclepias: A Study of the Living Plants of the United States” (due to the size of the sample pages, they load slowly) remains available only through the website. After two months of trying to get past the unthinking, rule bound machine algorithm so I can list the book on Amazon, I’m giving up. Several copies have sold through the website and I am glad to make payment arrangements and mail copies out.

That leaves the pdf versions for my three nonfiction books: Exploring the Ozark Hills; Goat Games; and The Pumpkin Project. These are $2.99 each. Anyone wanting a copy of these needs to email me from the contact page. We can make arrangements through PayPal.

    Karen, your books are do delightful, keep up the good work. I’m looking for to getting the printed copy of “FOR THE LOVE OF GOATS”. Please let me know when it is available (Amazon). I miss seeing & talking with you my friend! Pat

    Karen,I LOVED IT!!!! It was whimsical, funny and so much fun to read. The play on words was awesome & you did a great job on the art work & color! I don’t believe anyone could capture the goats with any photography or drawings like you have, it has to be done by someone who feels & can express thru there experience and love. Great job, my friend!
