About this title
ABOUT THE STORY The Christie's have twenty two grandchildren, and this is the first of several fiction books in which a different group of the children visit their grandparents ranch during summer vacation. Each of the children has their own unique adventure in which the others may also play a part. Horses, cattle, skunk and mountain lion encounters, Indian caves, gold discovery, a kidnapping, and being lost in the mountains are woven into this first book.Collette, Christie, Martin, Johnathan and Sarah have a summer adventure to remember for a lifetime. There is laughter, sadness, joy, fear and excitement during their visit. It is a moral book with issues of integrity, love, fairness, and discipline woven throughout. This is a refreshingly wholesome fiction book of children's adventures on their grandparents Oregon Ranch.About the Author:
Now in his eighty first year, Ed Christie has lived a full and varied life. He has been a cattle rancher, merchant seaman, sailor in both the Navy, and Coast Guard having served in WWII and the Korean conflict. For thirty years he was in law enforcement in California, while at the same time, raising cattle. After retiring he became a corporate security supervisor and anti terrorist instructor in South America, North Africa, and Russia (Siberia). He is also a pilot. He began writing fiction stories about his grandchildren after one of them requested he do so. He started to write during long overseas flights. Now retired, he lives in the Oregon forest with his wife, Jane, whom he lovingly refers to as "the war department," who keeps him on the straight and narrow. Without her help, and encouragement, the stories would never have been published. They have four sons and two daughters who gave them twenty two grandchildren.
