Best Gene Stratton-Porter of ALL!

So beautifully written! What a love story! You'll want to share this one with all your friends. I read it at least once a year and I can still hardly wait to turn the page. It so sweet and bittersweet and tender and lovely and on and on and on. All men should live and love like the Harvester!

A Gripping True WWII POW Escape Story!!

A Gripping True WWII POW Escape Story!!This book took me over until the very last page.I usually don't care for reading as a past time and especially novels that take too long to get through.I read this book over 20 years ago (and only did so by chance after finding it in the school library), because I had to submit a book report during my junior high school years. I enjoyed the book so much I eagery and ultimately compiled a great book report and was awarded 9/10 as a grade.Funny enough, I did so well with it that I took the liberty to re-submitted the same book report the following year and again was awarded another high mark (of course it was a different teacher and I had to re-write and date it).In fact here I am over 20 years later I plan to get my very own copy. That's how much I enjoyed it!"The Wooden Horse" by Eric Williams is a fabulous book and would make a perfect gift to that person who you think should read more...but doesn't. They'll thank you for it!

A Real-Life Trojan Horse Which Fooled the German Captors

The original Trojan Horse contained soldiers in the process of sneaking into a city. This real-life WWII thriller describes a Trojan Horse used by Allied POWs to tunnel their way out of a German POW camp. While the horse was ostensibly being used for vaulting exercise, a small group of men dug a tunnel underneath. Eventually it led them to freedom. The Germans were completely fooled.

A hermit & herbalist who searches and finds his true love

This romance novel in my mother's girlhood collection was the first novel I ever read. The Harvester, a hermit who lives alone and supports himself by growing, harvesting and drying medicinal herbs, has vision of a wonderful woman. He sets out in search of her among the city streets by knocking on doors and selling flowers. He finds his girl, but she is traumatized and ill. The Harvester builds a home for her and establishes a relationship only to have her become so ill she almost dies. How he wins both her life and love make this story one you will never forget! If only Hollywood knew, we could have an academy award if this were ever made into a movie - it's a treasure!

Do you believe in magic and true love? Read this book.

This is an old-fashioned tale of true love, purity, hard work and regeneration through oneness with nature. It's a beautiful story which I read every time I get stuck in bed sick. I give it to friends who get sick. Just reading it is healing. I hope you enjoy it.
