Special Offer

    I really love doing this blog and would do it even if I were not trying to promote the sale of my book. And I know, some of you probably get tired of me always pitching to buy the book. But when you have a book out and believe it is a good one that is suitable for most readers one has to try to promote as much as possible. So, with that in mind I am offering two of these aqua clips (bottle carrier) free to anyone who purchases a book through my website .  Just send me an email containing a copy of your purchase receipt and I will ship you two of these most unique items and pay for the shipping as well.

    The Aqua Clip is one the handiest things I've seen for carrying your water bottle around with you, hands free. This ingenious little clip snaps around the neck of most plastic bottles and slips down over your belt, waistband or whatever you wish to hang it on. And it stays secure. It is perfect for day hikes and your regular walks. I use it all the time for my trips out exploring our beautiful state and on my routine exercise walks at home.

     The Aqua Clip is made of durable black plastic and does have the Swift logo imprinted in silver (naturally.) The clip also serves as a bottle opener to remove those sometimes tough plastic tops. Just snap the holding ring on the bottle cap and lightly squeeze and the whole clip can be twisted providing extra leverage!
    I will send you two of these absolutely free of charge including postage when you send me a receipt of purchase of my book, Swift. Send a copy of your receipt of purchase through my website at this address: Just go to my website and click on the "buy now" button. This is a secure website so your purchase will be safely and professionally  handled. Though the book is available through many bookstores, and Barnes and Noble, this offer is only good for purchases made directly through my website and publisher. 

Here is the email address to send your receipt of purchase:

Flint Types of Eastern Kentucky

For those folks interested in archaeology and/or geology you no doubt have considered the flint (called chert by geologists) that all those arrowheads you've seen or in your collection are made from.  The colors, textures and behavior of the amazing substance various greatly and for many years, in fact up until the early 70's only the major identified primitive quarries type of flint were recognized in archaeological research. Little effort or attention was paid toward the raw material of those beautiful and finely crafted tools. Geologist performed little better simply noting in their field work that some beds of lime stones contained chert though sometimes the chert was described in detail.
    That all changed in the early 70's as the result of pioneering work on flint classification for sources found in the eastern part of Kentucky. This undertaking was done by Larry Meadows, Garland Dever and Ed Henson. Yes, yours truly was fortunate enough to know these two very …

The High Rock Petroglyph

What do you think the strange symbols carved on this sandstone boulder represent? The High Rock Carving is certainly one of the most mysterious antiquity found in the Red River Gorge country.  We did a previous post  about this strange rock in August, 2012. Discovered underneath a small rock shelter near the High Rock fire tower, the carvings were discovered on one loose boulder in the shelter. In the late 70's the boulder was removed from the rock shelter by the Red River Museum and Historical Society placed at the museum in Clay City, Kentucky. It was felt that vandals and artifact collectors would soon end up destroying the unusual carved stone. In fact some of the surface appears to have been chipped away, perhaps portions already removed by vandals.    The carvings have many varied, curved shapes including concentric circles and shapes that may represent animals. Additionally, there are numerous holes and other features. Some of the rock has been lost likely by the weathering …

Broke Leg Falls

For sure one old landmark in eastern Menifee County Kentucky is Broke Leg Falls. The Falls has been a tourist stop along US Hwy 460 since the 1940's and before. It was a place for picnics and adventures into the rough rocky terrain the likes of the Red River Gorge. It's location on once a major highway along with the pristine beauty of the box canyon that the stream formed no doubt contributed to the popularity of the Falls.
    The Falls is about 80 feet in height but much of the year has a small water flow. But over eons of time the Falls and stream have carved out a magnificent canyon retreating nearly to the crest of the ridge.
    Located in Menifee County Kentucky, Broke Leg Falls has been a popular tourist spot for travelers of the US Highway which is located only a few yards from the falls. A popular landmark since the 1940's, the Falls was privately owned. Visitors could pay a dime and get to hike the short distance down into the box canyon to view the Falls…
