$0.99


If you’re new to guinea pigs, you might think it’s just fine to house them in an aquarium and to buy them the most colorful food with seeds and bits of fruit or vegetables. You might think that hay is only an occasional treat and that guinea pigs are hearty animals who make great starter pets for kids and who rarely, if ever, need vet care. Besides, if you buy your guinea pig at a pet store, it’s probably very healthy, right?Unfortunately, all of the widespread beliefs cited above are actually myths. They’re just a few of the many misconceptions about guinea pigs that often lead to disaster when you get one as a pet.

Excerpt: .wife, life at home had been hard for little Eric. His mother and Olaf both suspected him of complicity. Mrs. Ericson was harsh and fault-finding, constantly wounding the boy’s pride; and Olaf was always getting her against him. Joe Vavrika heard often from his daughter. Clara had always been fond of her father, and happiness made her kinder. She wrote him long accounts of the voyage to Bergen, and of the trip she and Nils took through Bohemia to the little town where her father had grown up and where she herself was born. She visited all her kinsmen there, and sent her father news of his brother, who was a priest; of his sister, who had married a horse-breeder-of their big farm and their many children. These letters Joe always managed to read to little Eric. They contained messages for Eric and Hilda. Clara sent presents, too, which Eric never dared to take home and which poor little Hilda never even saw, though she loved to hear Eric tell about them when they were out getting the eggs together. But Olaf once saw Eric coming out of Vavrika’s house, -the old man had never asked the boy to come into his saloon, -and Olaf went straight to his mother and told her. That night Mrs. Ericson came to Eric’s room after he was in bed and made a terrible scene. She could be very terrifying when she was really angry. She forbade him ever to speak to Vavrika again, and after that night she would not allow him to go to town alone. So it was a long while before Eric got any more news of his brother. But old Joe suspected what was going on, and he carried Clara’s letters about in his pocket. One Sunday he drove out to see a German friend of his, and chanced to catch sight of Eric, sitting by the cattle-pond in the big pasture. They went together into Fritz Oberlies’ barn, and read the letters and talked things over. Eric admitted that things were getting hard for him at home. That very night old Joe sat down and laboriously penned a.

A Cowboy Like Me: Short Stories, Volume II


$7.95


Set in an environment of sagebrush, mountain bluebirds and rivers that disappear, the twelve titles, inside this book, describe a place familiar to everyone – or perhaps familiar to none. We only remember what we think we saw. The stories describe is a place where civilization does not necessarily describe refinement. As German philosopher Nietzsche once defined it, “The purpose of civilization is to convert man, a beast of prey into a tame and civilized animal; a domestic animal. It was about the same time Mark Twain wrote this: “I reckon I got to light out for the territory because Aunt Sally she’s going to adopt and civilize me and I can’t stand it. I’ve been there before.”And about the same time again, closer to home, one old sourdough described it this way: “See what women do? First it’s civilization and then the next thing, you know, you’ll be combin’ yer hair and eating broccoli.”So over the years, what has changed? It used to take three months to drive a covered wagon from Missouri to California. Now the same distance can be covered in three hours; but that, in itself, does not accurately describe anything. In the short story, A Song for the Son of a Buckaroo, a young man recounts how Kate, Karl, Alice and he take a late night swim in the Humboldt River. Later they go to town to dance until dawn, wearing only their underwear. In the small town of Elko, a cowboy can be who he wants to be. And that, by itself, doesn’t fix what is wrong. In The Sunday Matinee, undomesticated boys prefer watching western movies with “King of the Cowboys” Roy Rogers. Just ask them and they will tell you, it’s never fun to watch a film starring Ronald Reagan, who seems much too civilized to be a real cowpoke. But then, when they grow up and become domesticated, for whom did most of them cast their votes in a presidential election? Was the winner the best horse rider? Some of them still grouse about it. In The Boxer, a young man describes the Queensbury Rules of boxing, “Points are dedu

This book is a compilation of a few of my “cowboy” poems. It is a diverse mixture of topics about ranching and cowboyin.’ They vary from purely fictional, such as “Team Ropers From Hell” and “Another Hundred Years,” to poems based on real experiences, such as, “Crossin’ the Gila” and “The Dog Is Smellin’ My Saddle.” Some are inspirational like “Between the Doors,” and “A Cowboy’s Savior.” Still others are more humorous, such as “There’s A Cowboy At the Gate,” “Leavin’ Town,” and “My Talkin’ Horse” which fits in the “slightly weird” category along with one of my grandaughter’s favorites “The Window.” Rick Huff, a nationally recognized reviewer of Western Music and Cowboy Poetry recently gave this book a very enthusiastic review. He said “Hooker is ranch-raised and one heckuva poet, as he proves in ‘A Cowboy Spirit.’” He went on to say, “This one is special. Make the effort to find it.” “True West Magazine” chose “A Cowboy Spirit” as Best Western Poetry Book for 2014, in their January issue. I truly believe there’s poems for everyone in my collection. I hope you find some you like.

A Dangerous Word and Other Poems


A Dangerous Word and Other Poems


$3.99


This book of poems opens with an introduction that discusses what it means to find one’s voice, and how that process can be very challenging more often than not. Fee discusses his own voice, and the fact that while it is important to write poetry accessible to others, sometimes it is important to write for the self as well. The poems themselves are broken into two parts, the first including general poetry, and the second exploring the tribulations that accompany suffering from a mental illness. The opening poem, The Old Horse, showcases Fee’s strength at detailing something so simple in such an affecting and melancholic manner, causing the reader to sympathize not only with what is being described, but with the words on the page. These poems explore nature, human relationships, emotions, and what it means to struggle. With clarity, deft prose, and a certain understanding of the poetic form that can not easily be learned, B. Michael Fee delivers lyrical poems that are sure to strike a chord. While this book of poetry could come from nearly any author, it is important to note that each piece is singular, and resonates with the reader in a similar voice, as it is clear that each poem comes from one man, B. Michael Fee. While the form of each poem is nearly identical throughout the collection, the topics vary, but still hold enough similarities to create transcending themes that stretch from one page to another. A few of the poems could use further polishing, but for the most part, these are the kinds of poems that will make you think about things, pondering deeply about what it means to be alive, and you really can’t ask for much more than that.

Immediately falling in love with the horse, Anna learns to continue her love for the people that she is angry with, like her father. Unfortunately, Anna is unable to raise enough money to purchase the horse, so when she moves away from her grandmother’s, she won’t be able to see the horse again. This is the first entry into the Horses from Heaven series, a new series in kid’s fiction. It is a brilliant short story about girls and horses for kids, as it is an entertaining and enlightening read, especially for any child that is struggling to overcome an anger issue. Short stories for kids in recent years have been created for a quick profit rather than to entertain and teach their readers. Often, these books treat children like fools, and assume they are incapable of handling deeper plots or anything less than a completely happy and innocent story. Luckily, this book is a one of the few short stories for children that attempts to both entertain, and instruct its readers in a deep manner.

A Filly Called Easter


$2.99


Review, Janet Peto, VIP Pets: “It was late when I finished A Filly Called Easter. Memories of man pre-teen nights under the bed covers with a flashlight and a book from the black-stallion series enveloped me as I turned out the lamp. Hesse continues to demonstrate the strength and abilities of pre-teens/teenagers. This book is written for pre- and early teens. Buy it for any dreamy-eyed animal-loving child. Anyone who has ever dreamed of that perfect horse, or felt that connection and pleasure of enjoying the world from the back of a horse, should give it a try.”Eleven year-old Linda McCloud desperately wants a new barrel racing horse to compete in the annual River Bend Harvest Festival and talks her father into taking her to the weekend livestock auction in the hopes of finding one there. All dreams of barrel facing fly out the window when Linda sets eyes on the beautiful and very pregnant palomino filly named Easter. Despite his misgivings, her father agrees to buy the horse. The vet, Doc Martin, quickly becomes a visitor to the McCloud family farm. When Mother Nature unleashes her fury, it’s up to Linda and her friends to save Easter and the unborn foal. Hope comes in the form of an unlikely ally.”A Filly Called Easter” is a heart-warming adventure story for all those who believe in miracles. It is loosely based on a true story: everything about the filly and the complications during her pregnancy is based on a true story, but the action/adventure are pure fiction.

This book tells about Henry Baxter, a boy who had different ideas. One day in class while the other children were painting houses, flowers, and jet airplanes, Henry painted a blue horse. A blue horse! thought Miss Allen, his teacher. A blue horse! said the children. Who ever saw a horse like that? Is there something wrong with Henry? asked Mr. Stanley, the principal. All kinds of people asked him questions. But Henry went right on painting horses that were green, purple, and sometimes even with stripes or polka dots. Everyone thought Henry was terribly mistaken about color. Was he? There is lots to laugh and think about in this story of Henry Baxter and his horses of different colors.

Excerpt: . saddles, rode, as the custom is, with light snaffle bridles, leather guards over our feet, and broad wooden stirrups, and each carried his lunch in a pouch slung on the lassoing horn of his saddle. Four big, badly-trained dogs accompanied us. It was a ride of nearly thirty miles, and of many hours, one of the most splendid I ever took. We never got off our horses except to tighten the girths, we ate our lunch with our bridles knotted over saddle horns, started over the level at full gallops, leapt over trunks of trees, dashed madly down hillsides rugged with rocks or strewn with great stones, forded deep, rapid streams, saw lovely lakes and views of surpassing magnificence, startled a herd of elk with uncouth heads and in the chase, which for some time was unsuccessful, rode to the very base of Long’s Peak, over 14,000 feet high, where the bright waters of one of the affluents of the Platte burst from the eternal snows through a canyon of indescribable majesty. The sun was hot, but at a height of over 8,000 feet the air was crisp and frosty, and the enjoyment of riding a good horse under such exhilarating circumstances was extreme. In one wild part of the ride we had to come down a steep hill, thickly wooded with pitch pines, to leap over the fallen timber, and steer between the dead and living trees to avoid being “snagged,” or bringing down a heavy dead branch by an unwary touch. Emerging from this, we caught sight of a thousand Texan cattle feeding in a valley below. The leaders scented us, and, taking fright, began to move off in the direction of the open “park,” while we were about a mile from and above them. “Head them off, boys ” our leader shouted; “all aboard; hark away ” and with something of the “High, tally-ho in the morning ” away we all went at a hard gallop down-hill. I could not hold my excited animal; down-hill, up-hill, leaping over rocks and timber, faster every moment the pace grew, and still the leader shouted, “Go it, boys.”.

Tell me, what good is it to have God visit you if you can’t tell anybody about it? Or, if not God, then somebody looking very much like him, or how I had pictured him. Perhaps, to be safe I should call him god, you know, lower case “g.”No, that won’t do. There’s no escaping it: it was the Almighty all right, our capital “G” Father-of-the-Son God. I don’t think there’s any doubt about it. Let me rephrase that: There is no doubt about it. Yes, yes, I know it sounds crazy, but now and then things happen to you, incredible things, thing you cannot explain but that you cannot deny-not to yourself anyway. For they did happen, and you know they did, whether the whole thing sounds crazy or looks crazy or feels crazy or is crazy or not. Took place. Occurred. Yes sir. So when in truth I did lay eyes on him, did talk to him, did meet him, how can I deny it? I can’t.My mistake was sharing it, and perhaps that’s the lesson to draw from all of this: Keep your mouth shut. Especially around close relatives and people in white coats. It was a Tuesday, a rainy one. My room had that dampness about it, that musty smell that only ventures out after three days of rain. Seeps out of the walls and floor and ceiling, dryness fully pervaded now. Our house is big and grand and all that but not well sealed, not round my room anyway, so if the rain doesn’t turn back after a day or two, it tends to pick up courage and come on in-into my room. In musty spirit, anyway.I had finished the chapter I was reading and I had placed my bookmark where I had left off. I closed the book in my lap, leaned back and closed my eyes. Picturing. Picturing. A moment later He knocked on my door and I went to open it.I fumbled with the locks and the bolts and the safety chain and didn’t even stop to wonder (I never do) that I was so carefully sealed. He knocked again, louder this time, or was it that I was closer to the door (of course, I didn’t know that he was He yet), and told Him to hold His horses. Finally, after

A LEGEND CALLED SHATTERHAND Responsible for the upkeep of law and order throughout the whole of Montana territory, the Second Cavalry had its meager forces stretched to the limit. The Sioux were riding north and raiding Crow camps near Rosebud Creek. Over the border the British needed horses for their new mounted police force and were offering $100 a bronc, an incentive for any two-bit rustler who could handle a rope and didn’t mind how many folks he shot up, red or white. Worse, hard cases learned there was a large consignment of Army pay, poorly guarded at Fort Shaw. It was into this powder keg that a tall mysterious frontiersman strode. The man had the bearing of someone who had made a name for himself a long, long time ago. And indeed he had. For this was old Shatterhand. A brand new challenge awaited one of the most famous characters in the whole of western literature. ABOUT THE AUTHOR Leaving school early with few qualifications, Bryan Holmes went to work in a factory and then, in his own words, “got cheesed off, jacked it all in and went to university.” Upon graduating he went to work teaching economics in a College of Advanced Technology and stayed in the profession for the rest of his working career. Bryan started writing seriously in the 1950s, but it was only in the mid-1970s that he turned to the western. “The odd thing is I’d never read a western until I’d written my first. Of course, I’ve read many since – either to see how others do it or to read the books of writer-friends – but I originally fell into the genre quite by accident.” After The Avenging Four was accepted for publication, Bryan never looked back. In addition to a steady stream of accomplished westerns, he also began to sell short horror, crime and SF stories in the fields of science fic
