High Reaches Nubians

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

What Do You Call an Opossum, If You’ve Never Seen One?

The Carduans have landed. No one knows they’re here. They don’t know where they are.

They are leaving me with a problem. What do you call the planet Earth? Obviously they don’t know any of the reasons or languages we used to name our planet. So they will find another name.

The creatures are unknown to the Carduans as are the plants. As they meet each one, they will need to find names for them. And our names will not work.

This does lead to a fun guessing game: Do you recognize this creature? I’ll have to remember about it later.

After 19,000 words [Yes, I’m still behind.], they are meeting snow and getting snowed in.

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.

Find Me On:


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 Pumpkin Project by Karen GoatKeeper

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.
