High Reaches Nubians

Welcome to GoatKeepers Press.

Garden Going Full Blast

I like tomatoes fresh from the garden, delicious varieties never found in the market. But trying to eat four grocery sacks full every week is too much.

My freezer is full of tomatoes, peppers and okra. Butternut squash are in the pantry. And still more comes in almost every day.

The plants know fall is here, the end of their season and they are frantically producing seeds. The wild plants are doing the same.

I will have to take a load in to the Farmers Market. Maybe other people can still eat more tomatoes, peppers and okra.

Someday I will figure out why the sidebar refuses to show images. Maybe I need to ask someone?

Who Is Edwina? Find Out In “Edwina”!

cover for Edwina by Karen GoatKeeper

Aleta’s life is in turmoil. Her parents divorced. She has a new stepmother and is competing with a stepsister. She needs a friend.

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.

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, got your two new books and enjoyed them very much. I especially liked the ‘pooka’…..I have always enjoyed Harvey so this was special. Pat

    Karen, I got my copy of Yarns of Ozark Storytellers and its GREAT. The one thing I always enjoyed when I lived there was the stories everyone brought in to the Cultural Center & shared with me. I miss that part. Was a great book!

    Thank you for your wonderfully detailed webpage on Wood Sage! I think I was able to successfully identify this volunteer growing in my native garden. We’ll see once it flowers 🙂

    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!
