When Michelle Met the Queen is a charming story of how Michelle Obama's and Queen Elizabeth II's families linked with one another across time. After the first Queen Elizabeth of England's death, Britain became involved in the slave trade from Africa to the colonies.  First Lady Michelle Obama's great, great grandfather was a slave, and it was after many years of struggle and hardship that her family finally saw blacks gain freedom in the U.S.

Shelley and Pauline believe it is the responsibility of whites to expose the injustices perpetrated against people of color over the centuries, and to stand up for the resulting injustice and inequity we see today.  They know you will want copies of this interesting and timely story.

Gunfighters, Thieves and Lawmen

Sully Wheeler doesn't care why his cattle are disappearing. He doesn't care why but it has to stop. Perhaps it's the cost of hiding from his past, but who would steal from a one-time gunfighter?

The NW Mounted Policeman that Sully contacted appeared more intent on stopping vigilante action than in stopping theft. If that proves to be the case, Sully will recover his own property, even if it takes gunfire to do it.

Who is this Mountie, anyway? Is he a cop or something else entirely? Is he working to support the crown, leave the crown or actually do something for the settlers?

And while we're talking about that Mountie, isn't he spending too much time with that newspaper lady?
