Meet Moose, the biggest dog in the world. Moose lives in a traveling circus. One day he tells his closest friend, a cat named Big Yellow Face, he is tired of moving from town to town. Moose wants a house that is a real home.  

Deuce and Diesel meet Moose at the circus and take him home to try and fit him into their small world.  

Miss Dixie explains to Moose that it’s not a house that makes a home. What truly makes a home is being with the ones who care about you, your family, and the memories you make with them.

Moose comes to realize that he’s had a home all along with his friends in the circus who care about him.

Eight Acres and a Cow, Now Available Worldwide

June 10, 2019

Part memoir, part historical fiction, Eight Acres and a Cow is a story of family, Ohio, and the perseverance of working-class people during the Great Depression.

Find it from major retailers here, or ask for it at your favorite bookstore.

Carol was a mountain girl and wanted to stay that way, but Daddy had to find work. So, despite misgivings, the Richardson family cranked up the 1936 Dodge and headed for Ohio where the jobs were. They camped overnight by the side of the road and peed in the woods in every state they crossed. After two days and 500 miles, they pulled in front of a sorry-looking brick house on Leap Road in Hilliard, Ohio. It seemed even worse than they’d feared.

But Ohio had surprises — many good, some mysterious, a few scary, and a couple sad. The family bumped along in the Leap Road house and life got smoother and better as they went. Then Mom and Daddy started whispering secrets, and that brought the biggest surprise of all.

Carol Richardson grew up in Ohio and worked nearly twenty-five years in Washington, DC, as a lead grass-roots organizer for peace and justice groups. As an ordained pastor in the United Methodist Church, she also served congregations both in Ohio and Maryland. Currently, she is retired and living in Columbus, Ohio.
