Because of some neighbors "from hell" the Storms decided to completely change their lifestyle, sell their condo, downsize and become full-timers. This book tells the story of their transition from living in a home that never moved (unless there was an earthquake) to living in a home that rarely stops moving; how they overcame the "stuff syndrome"; how they bartered for their rent; and how they took the "lemons" their nasty neighbors tried giving them and made "lemonade"... and never looked back. If the reader has been thinking about living full time in their recreational vehicle or volunteering at a campground as a host this book will explain the process as the Storms lived through it. The Storms had both good and bad experiences as hosts and this book explains in detail some of those experiences both the good and the bad.

The Hound of Erin delves into the ancient history of our world, primarily of Ireland and the Celts and the mystic lore of these people. So many historically-found lore and myths of these ancient people seem complex and hard to follow. This story fills in those gaps and softens the transition to such details in a colorful and epic event. The characters in this book have a rich mythological history, and this saga is about their greatest hero, Cuchuland, whose name was ever on the lips of the bards and poets, who flamed like a comet through the pages of the ancient manuscripts on Celtic mythology. This hero of two separate worlds gained his fame and honor in the world of man by fighting great battles and servings the kings of Ireland and those of the sidhe (faerie)realm. Any fan of Tolkien's popular books - The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, etc. will love The Hound of Erin, and also Cash Bond's other book, The Faerie Bard.

View: 552

Some of the greatest hounds in the southwest match wits, courage, and endurance with the elusive cougar, bear, and wildcat. New Mexico and Arizona have produced some truly exceptional hounds and houndsmen over the years, and the Slash Ranch hounds were among the best. Over much of the first half of the 1900’s these hounds with Dub Evans were making a name for themselves all over the southwest. People coming from far and wide to witness them in action as well as for the chance to harvest bear and lion. The Black Range and Gila Wilderness of New Mexico where much of this book takes place, is still as wild and remote today as it was in the previous century. The bottomless labyrinths of canyons and snow-capped peaks a paradise for the sportsman. Home to such famous mountain men and frontiersmen as Ben Lilly, Nat Straw, and Montague Stevens, it is a place that can only be experienced. And what better way to experience it then to follow a pack of great hounds in pursuit? The answer is, there is none. The chase will take you places that few people have seen, and fewer still have tread. A Classic among hound books Slash Ranch hounds details much lion-lore mixed in with great stories of the chase. Much can be learned about the complex workings of the chase, as well as gaining a greater respect for the hounds and houndsmen. Without exaggeration, Evans describes his adventures with truth that can be felt through the pages. From tales of roping lions to catching stock-killing bear and cougar. This is adventure on the western frontier at its finest. So, saddle up, as this is a book for the modern houndsman as well as the armchair adventurer. This is a book to read next the campfire or fireplace, dreaming of hunts bygone and hunts still to come.

General George Armstrong Custer and his wife, Libbie Custer, were wholehearted dog lovers. At the time of his death at Little Bighorn, they owned a rollicking pack of 40 hunting dogs, including Scottish Deerhounds, Russian Wolfhounds, Greyhounds and Foxhounds. Told from a dog owner’s perspective, this biography covers their first dogs during the Civil War and in Texas; hunting on the Kansas and Dakota frontiers; entertaining tourist buffalo hunters, including a Russian Archduke, English aristocrats and P. T. Barnum (all of whom presented the general with hounds); Custer’s attack on the Washita village (when he was accused of strangling his own dogs); and the 7th Cavalry’s march to Little Bighorn with an analysis of rumors about a Last Stand dog. The Custers’ pack was re-homed after his death in the first national dog rescue effort. Well illustrated, the book includes an appendix giving depictions of the Custers’ dogs in art, literature and film.

Samuel is a romp. Keith Quincy has created a character that may redefine for readers the psychological term approach/avoidance. Seldom in literature has a character been so disgustingly lovable, and seldom has a story walked as deftly on the fine line between comedy and tragedy. This is a good book! —Chris Crutcher I can’t remember when I laughed as hard reading a book as I laughed reading Samuel. It also made me sad. Humor and pathos are difficult to mix, but Quincy mixes them just right. He presents Samuel’s character without sentimentality, which not many of us could do. Samuel is a piece of work. — Terry Davis
