Ghost of Greenbrier County

Granny Sue's Views and Reviews

This well written collection (has a) haunting, compelling quality, and (readers) will find themselves looking over their shoulders and moving just a little faster should they pass through Greenbrier County late at night

"Chihuahuas" provides a charming overview of the breed for owners as well as potential owners. In addition, the book is full of gorgeous full color original paintings of Chihuahuas, created by award winning artist Misty Murray Walkup.

The Akita Breed Book

Hoflin Publishing

A well written, thought provoking book that takes an in depth looks at the Akita Breed. With all the beautiful, one of a kind illustrations (64 frameable prints), Akita fanciers will be wanting two of these books; one from which to display the wonderful prints and another to keep intact to be added to their Akita library. With its unique form of publication, this book is every bit as much an Akita art book as it is an Akita breed book.
