Description

This book, The Mystery of Western Tack – Solved! is one of the first books I wrote, and published.  At the Sutter Creek Craft Fair I had my debut book signing featuring this very book!  The reviews have been outstanding.  The comments I receive most often refer to the well written content.  There is appreciation for the step-by-step methodology I employ when I write.

The Mystery of Western Tack – Solved! provides information about Western tack.There are details of how to use each item, when, and for what purposes to use a piece of tack.  There are detailed pictures explaining what is written,  so there is no confusion over the tack being explained.
