My stories include two from Granny and Grandpa Erskiine
"Sail by the Moon"
"Never Go Home Without A Fish"

"Bringing Back the Buffalo"
This essay is about Fred DuBray, a Lakota Indian, who is in charge of the largest Native American buffalo herd.

"Almost A Hanging"
George, the hero of this story, was Grandpa Erskineís father.

"Fire in the Chaparral!"

My son Cleo knows more about our chaparral ecology that I do, so we worked together on this essay.

I grew up on Lake Erie and I tell the story of how the lake almost died, and came back to life.
