High Reaches Nubians

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

Disaster Weekend

Due to a clerical error far away from me but connected via email I ended up minus the email account for this website and locked out of the website. Needless to say I was a bit upset. Yes, the Project got done but not written. Now I have ideas for the commentaries. They will appear by Saturday.

The other ongoing saga here is my quest to create clickable buttons so a click can take you from the notice about a book to its sample pages and on to the Shop page. I found another method. Tried it. Am looking for another method. Someday I will figure this out but not today. All of these are accessed through the Menu for now.

New Botany Books

Dr. Richard Rintz has published two botanical books. You might notice the About Me page is now about GKP authors and includes some information about Dr. Rintz as well as about me.

So many important botanical papers are in other languages. Older ones are in Latin and German. Discovering the Floral Biology of Aristolochia has many of these important papers translated into English.

cover of The Syrian Milkweed by Dr. Richard Rintz

The Syrian Milkweed is the story of Dr. Rintz’ quest to discover how a North American plant ended up with such an inappropriate name. His search took him back into original papers in Latin and parts of his translations are included in the book.

Book Sample Pages!

A pdf of free sample pages from all of my books are available under GKP Books on the menu. This includes both of the new books by Dr. Rintz.


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. I write a short weekly blog on some aspect of writing my books. It is a great place to meet new authors, established authors and people who like to read.

Although I try to pretend every day has about 40 hours, a day really has only 24 hours. So I have no Facebook or Twitter accounts.

I do updates on Wednesday afternoons. Occasionally weather or other difficulty delays this. And I tend to take the last week of the year off.

The Outside Project is closed for the year.

Hailyann found pulling blocks up an inclined plane lots of fun but care was needed to keep the blocks from falling off.


The Project wonders how an inclined plane works. Hailyann Workman helped find this out.

Goat Galleries

The My Kids pictures are starting up. A few at a time and all the goat pictures will appear.
