High Reaches Nubians

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

Winter Activities

It is possible to work outside in the cold. Insulated overalls, jackets, gloves, hat and clothing layers help. I go up a size or two every winter to accommodate the extra layers.

Staying inside is preferable. It gives extra writing time. I’m working on two new books for release later this year.

The Carduan Chronicles follows a ship of nine aliens suddenly stranded in an Ozarks ravine during a February ice storm. They can not go home. They must survive or die.

My Ozarks Home is a working title for a book of photographs, personal essays and haikus celebrating my 25th year here in the Ozarks.

It’s now 48 days to March.

Solve the pencil puzzles as you browse your way through information and trivia about goats.

Purchasing Books

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 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.

Visit me at: http://www.pinterest.com/karengoatkeeper. I try to keep up with nine boards on nature, my books, country living, gardening, my cats, my goats and the science projects. 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.

The Project Corner and Outside Project are discontinued. If anyone is interested in any of the Projects, write me. I do have all of them and will be glad to send you a copy.

Goat Galleries

My Goat and Kid galleries are again in need of updating. Sigh. The goats are camera shy, chores are numerous, the weather is turning cold. Excuses.
