| Safe at Last |
True Stories of Horse Rescues
By Elaine Pease
Elaine Pease wrote Safe at Last: True Stories of Horse Rescues based on her volunteer experience at Colorado Horse Rescue (CHR) in Longmont, Colorado. Her new children’s book reflects her deep interest in horse rescue. The six rescue stories in Safe at Last give young readers an introduction to the whys and hows of animal rescues. Readers age 7 and up will enjoy the lively personalities of the individual horses and the happy endings to their stories.
Beautiful photographs by Roxanne Capaul illustrate the stories and Mini Pearl, the ‘spokeshorse’ for CHR, pops up throughout the book with tidbits of information about horses.
Elaine Pease is the author of several children's books including the historical novel Ghost Over Boulder Creek.
“Safe at Last is a wonderful and deeply inspirational book, perfect for youngsters.”
— Marc Bekoff, author and Ethics Committee member of the Jane Goodall Institute

Soldier and Indian Agent
By Nancy Oswald
Edward 'Ned' Wynkoop came west to Denver in the very early days of that city. In the American Civil War he served as an officer and saw action at the Battle of Gloreita Pass.
He may be best known for his role in the investigation and condemnation of Col. John Chivington following the Sand Creek Massacre. Wynkoop wasn't present at the attack and was appalled at the eye-witness accounts he heard during his investigation. In 1866, he became an Indian agent for the Southern Cheyennes and Arapaho, but resigned from that post following the Battle of Washita River. He died in Santa Fe in 1891.
Edward Wynkoop: Soldier and Indian Agent is Number Seventeen in the Now You Know Bio series.
Nancy Oswald is the author of four historical novels: Nothing Here But Stones, Hard Face Moon, Rescue in Poverty Gulch, and Trouble on the Tracks .
