High Reaches Nubians

Karen GoatKeeper welcomes you to this website, home of GoatKeepers Press.

Possible Website Problem

Evidently the Contact Page has been misbehaving for some time. I wish someone had informed me sooner. I’m checking out some options to fix it.

For now I know the comment forms work on the pages. The spammers have been busy using them. And a few visitors as well. I do like legitimate comments from people about the site.

Mid November Target Date!

For Love of Goats” now has a cover. It’s below. It’s complete except for about ten pages.

O Is For Oberhasli does have a story. I don’t like it and am trying to rewrite it. Q, R, S, V and Y are written and awaiting illustrations. U Is For Udder is half written.

Illustrators definitely deserve respect. Doing the sixty or so illustrations for this book have certainly taught me that.

Looking For a Goat Novel?

Dora's Story

Dora started as a question: Was a goat “Black Beauty” possible? That is, could a novel tell the story of a goat?

I began thinking of all the things that could and have happened to goats I have known and known about. There were lots of ideas.

First came the goat. Using a half breed goat gave more story leeway. And Emily appeared as the love of Dora’s life to begin with. Then Dora took off.

You can read sample pages from “Dora’s Story” and purchase it in print or as an ebook or from Kindle.

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, any book purchase from my site is 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.

Find Me On:


Visit me at: http://www.pinterest.com/karengoatkeeper. I try to keep up with boards on nature, my books, country living, gardening, my cats and my goats. Take care or you may spend hours browsing as Pinterest is a very interesting place to visit.


Visit me at: Goodreads. It is a great place to meet new authors, established authors and people who like to read. My reading goal this year is 70 books. I’m over 40 and working on three more. Have you read anything interesting lately?

New goat pictures are in the gallery. Augustus did his best to look awful. This season’s kids are now only pictures.

    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 🙂
