Writing New Book

Mules Cracker and Brick, stars of my upcoming book, relaxing at home.

Sorry I haven’t written lately. I’ve been busy chasing mules, admiring an 8-legged lamb and having lunch with Robert, a 1000 pound, dead man.

Yes, I’m writing a new book.

Draft One of the new book: All the field notes have been transcribed. Now comes the fleshing out.

Mule Ramble Book

My new book is about my recent mule ramble from North Carolina to Idaho with mules Brick and Cracker. The first draft’s complete. Now comes the fleshing out.

In addition to tales from the road, the new book features plenty of photos, diagrams, maps and practical information for long and short distance equine travel.

New Book Update

Right now we’re putting together a list of folks that want to know when the book comes out. We’re planning to do the traditional publishing route (ie: agent/publisher). These days, that means the writer needs to show the publisher there’s interest in the book. Yes, even Hemingway would have asked you to sign up hear about the book.

Please join the RiverEarth.com Newsletter and we’ll keep you posted as the book progresses.

Brick and Cracker update

Now, a few photos of how Brick and Cracker are spending their days.

Cracker and Brick can’t have every day off. Here, my brother Christian (R) joins me for a ride aboard Brick.

Hi Terry,
Lovely hearing back from you. We’ve added you to the book list.
I think you should soooo fly out to Denver and attend Ben Kern’s induction in to the Wyoming Cowboy Hall of Fame. After mentioning Candy’s book, I tracked down a copy. It should be here this coming week. I sure look forward to reading it.
I’m dropping you an email with some more thoughts.
Hope you’re enjoying some of the same fine spring weather we’ve had these early May days in western North Carolina.

Hello Bernie
I will be looking forward to your new book and you can add me to the list of people that would be interested in reading it when it comes out.

I also wanted to let you know that I recently found out that the wagon master, Ben Kern, whom I wrote you about before is going to be inducted in to the Wyoming Cowboy Hall of Fame in Cheyenne, WY in September. I am thinking that I may fly in to Denver, I have Southwest flyer miles, and rent a car and drive on up to attend the induction. It will be an opportunity to visit with some of the folks that traveled with him in 1993 on the Oregon trail and meet others of similar interest and experience. The person who sent out the message about Ben’s induction is Candy Moulton, and she is one of the persons that traveled with Ben on the Oregon trail and wrote the book Wagon Wheels with him. She being the main writer. Candy is or was the president of the Western writers association. You can google her if you are interested. I mention this only because of your interest in writing and of course your own equine travel interest. I can find out more if you would be interested. .

Good luck on your new book and I look forward to seeing more.
