When Mr Alec Quigley, superannuated insurance clerk, leaves the Bedfordshire bungalow of his indomitable niece Angela and makes his way to the Spanish village that he once read about in a history book, things are unlikely to go smoothly. A man with many foibles, not least his tendency to fantasise, his guardian Angela wants him home before he can get into any of the frequent scrapes that have dogged his - and, of late, her - existence. He is, however, intent on carving out a new life for himself in the Spanish interior and soon enlists the help of Fernando the fireman, Jorge the restaurateur and Salvador the soak to repel the imminent invasion of Angela. When love between himself and Fernando's older sister rears its hypnotic head, the stage is set for a showdown between Mr Quigley, reality and his niece. This is, according to Mr Quigley, a true story.

Paw Tracks Here and Abroad is a book for "children" ages 6 to 96! It chronicles the adventures of Snickers, a stray dog with a strong will to survive. When Snickers is adopted in Peoria, Illinois, she quickly becomes part of the family-but that doesn't keep her from trying to escape whenever the opportunity presents itself! Over her twenty-two long years as a beloved member of the Wilson family, Snickers moves across the country and halfway across the world, makes new friends, observes and engages in bizarre behaviors, and experiences the thrill of encountering other cultures. A Dog's Tale is Snickers' story, told from a dog's-eye view, about loyalty, nurturing, adoption, playtime, exercise, socialization, veterinarian care, nutrition, grooming, boarding, and aging. At Snickers' request, Paw Tracks and the author are proud supporters of the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals(r). The ASPCA was established in 1866 as the first humane society in North America. Today it maintains programs that extend anticruelty and animal welfare missions across the country. The author believes that having animals in our lives makes the world a better place, and he and Snickers both believe the ASPCA makes the world a much better place for animals.
