Ant Press is celebrating not one, but TWO book launches today!
Congratulations to Nick Smith for publishing Oman, My Dear: Living and Working in the jewel of Arabia.
Arriving in Muscat, Nick was befriended by a charming Omani taxi driver, who guided him and his family through eight exciting and eventful years living and working in the Middle East. This story is an insight into life in this fascinating and mystic part of world, from a family viewpoint, through the Arab Spring and into early 2020.
Oman, My Dear is the companion book to Nick’s wife’s book, Paw Prints in Oman, a New York Times bestseller which describes Charlotte Smith’s time in Oman assisting vets and rehoming hundreds of strays.
And congratulations to Richard Witte for publishing Windmills to Submarines: Memories of a Small-Town Texas Kid, 1938 – 1958.
This warm-hearted memoir of a Texas boyhood is filled with stories of family, fishing, nuns and football, set against the backdrop of WWII and the years following. We follow Dick’s journey from his earliest memories of playing in his Grandmother’s chicken coop through his memorable school days to his earliest adventures as a submariner.
A classic coming-of-age story, Windmills to Submarines is filled with small-town Texas heroes and the kids they raised. Beach camping recipes included!
