Only God Can Give Her The Strength
‘The Lonely Goose‘ is based on a single goose we have left on Mr. Bob’s farm where I live. At one time, we had fourteen geese. They weren’t really ours. We called them the Community Geese, since they traveled from place to place. We used to feed them corn.
They would come to the fence and eat. They also loved bread. In fact, they liked bread better than anything we fed them. In the last several years, the number of geese here on the farm has dwindled down. I loved looking out in the field and seeing them eating or walking in a line.
They usually stayed here on the farm during the day, and went to Mr. Ken’s pond, next door, for the night. One by one, they disappeared. I feel sad that there is only one left. I called her ‘The Lonely Goose’. It was that thought that made me realize I needed to write a book.
Of course, most of it is fiction, but there are some real facts too. I am trying to imagine what the geese might talk to each other about. I hope you enjoy reading this book to your young children. This is my second children’s book. I wrote ‘Princess Kari & the Golden Haired Boy’ in 2010.
It was based on my son Travis, his wife Kari, and their two young daughters, Katie and Campbell.
