Here is the first person narrative of Homer Bolton. Follow Homer as he starts out on his father's cattle ranch, then becomes a Deputy in Broken Hearts before becoming the first Sheriff of Duncan Flats. It is meant to be a light read and should take about 60 minutes.A collection of quirky verse by Barnaby Wilde which is not at all rhinoceros. (Well, maybe just a little bit, at the end). A miscellany of verses full of weak puns, old jokes and a sense of the ridiculous, including 'A pyschiatrist's guide to empathetic garden design', 'Two flies walking on a bald man's head', and 'Acupuncture is a jab well done' amongst others.And absolutely no mention of rhinoceros (OK. perhaps a very little bit at the end).
