Uncle Sam: A Horse’s Tale

Add to Cart  button_order_e_book Copyright 2011  $15.00 Children’s book for early readers. Travel with Uncle Sam, a cavalry horse, to Louisiana for the 1941 Army Maneuvers.  It has been fun to watch the face of young readers.  It’s a neat story of the legend of Fort Polk’s wild horse herd and their roots with the United States Cavalry.

“Young people are enjoying Uncle Sam nearly as much as the adults who read it to them.” 

Uncle Sam features the excellent artwork of Jade Ross, an emerging artist from Alexandria, Louisiana.

I always wanted to tell the story of Joe and Eliza, my great great great grandparents.  I researched, dreamed, went to Ireland, wrote, re-wrote and published it. A first novel is like a first kiss.  Sweet and unforgettable.  I still smile when I look at it.  I believe you’ll enjoy it too.
