Most of my books are nonfiction. Links at the top of the page will take you
to biography books I have written, as well as ones about Texas.
Homesteading on the Plains: Daily Life in the Land of Laura Ingalls Wilder is
about the westward movement. I have been to all of the Laura Ingalls Wilder
"Little House" sites. Pictures in this book were created by Harvey Dunn,
Laura's nephew by marriage. The cover is a copy of a huge painting that fills
one wall at the art museum in Brookings, South Dakota. It is called "The
Prairie Is my Garden."
Some stories are totally made up, like these
about Walter the Dragon. They are part of a
reading series published in New Zealand and
have been translated in Norwegian and
No Year of the Cat is my newest book. I found this folktale
while speaking to the American School in Taipei.
These nonfiction readers have been translated into Spanish.
Some of the books are about science.
