His father was placing him on the backs of horses before he could walk. One of his early vivid memories is of a scary spill, at age 5 or 6, off a fast galloping pony. A few years later he was harnessing and handling in the field his own team of work horses. Until his parents found out, he was breaking to ride not only the young work horses but the feeder cattle as well. His first experiences as a trainer were teaching tricks to a pony 65 years ago and gentling and starting two riding horses for a great uncle 60 years ago. The first 50 years of his adult life were spent as an academic biologist, trying to understand the behavior of animals and humans. He is a 35-year continuous breeder of American Quarter Horses and still starts the young horses bred and reared on the Michigan farm that he and Lorrie have operated for 37 of their 59 shared years. He is author or editor of a dozen books.. In his earlier life he was for 43 years a University of Michigan biology professor. He is a medalist and member of the National Academy of Sciences, past president of the Human Behavior and Evolution Society, and the Animal Behavior Society’s Animal Behaviorist of the Year: 2002.

Wayne, MI Immortal Investments Publishing 2004 0972363718 / 9780972363716 Hard Cover Very Good+ with no dust jacket 
SIGNED BY MR. & MRS. GORDIE HOWE, with an inscription. Hard cover is red with gold lettering on spine. Pages are clean and tight. Extensively illustrated with dozens of color and b/w photographs. Foreword by Mike & Marian Ilitch, the longtime owners of the Detroit Red Wings [although not during the Howe era]. Howe is such an institution, a true 'Living Legend' in Detroit, that the name 'Mr. Hockey' is copyrighted. When Howe played for the Red Wings, it was at the now leveled Olympia Stadium. "Howe was an ambidextrous player, able to use the straight sticks of his era to shoot left or right-handed. He received his first taste of pro experience at fifteen years old ...A year later, he was noticed by Detroit Red Wings scout Fred Pinckney. He was signed by the Red Wings and assigned to their junior team, the Galt Red Wings... In 1945, however, he was promoted to the Omaha Knights of the minor professional United States Hockey League (USHL) , where he scored 48 points in 51 games as a seventeen-year-old. While playing in Omaha, Frank Selke of the Toronto Maple Leafs organization noticed that Howe was not properly listed as Red Wings property. Having a good relationship with Detroit coach Jack Adams, he notified Adams of the clerical error and Howe was quickly put on the team's protected list. Signing with the Red Wings for his first season...Howe made his NHL debut in 1946 at the age of 18, playing right wing for the Detroit Red Wings, #9 which he would wear for the rest of his career; and which is one of the few retired Red Wings player's numbers. Howe quickly established himself as a great goal scorer and a gifted playmaker with a willingness to fight. In fact, he fought so often in his rookie season to the point that he was told by coach Jack Adams, "I know you can fight. Now can you show me you can play hockey?" The hockey term, Gordie Howe hat trick, which includes a goal, an assist, and a fight, was coined after Howe in reference to his penchant for fighting. Using his great physical strength, he was able to dominate the opposition in a career that spanned five decades. In a feat unsurpassed by any hockey player, Gordie Howe finished in the top five in scoring for twenty straight seasons. Although famous as #9 during his long career, 18-year old Gordon Howe actually wore #17 throughout his rookie season with the Detroit Red Wings in 1946–47. Howe led Detroit to four Stanley Cups and to first place in regular season play for seven consecutive years (1948–49 to 1955–56) , a feat never equaled in NHL history. During this time Howe and his linemates, Sid Abel and Ted Lindsay, were known collectively as "The Production Line", both for their scoring and as an allusion to Detroit auto factories. The trio dominated the league in such a fashion that in 1949–50, they finished one-two-three in league scoring. Howe had been in his prime during a defensive era, the 1940s and 1950s, when scoring was difficult and checking was tight. " Growing up in a sports loving Detroit family, heard many a tale of Howe and his amazing hockey abilities, from family and neighbors. A great piece of Detroit and sports history. ; Photographs; 1.1 x 9.2 x 6 Inches; xviii, 265+ pages; Hardcover has minor shelf wear and bumping. Missing DJ. ; Signed by Biographee

18 Bailey, Nancy Clifford of Drummond Island
Lincoln, NE iUniverse 2001 0595179509 / 9780595179503 Paperback New 
9.20 X 6.12 X 0.49 inches; xii, 159 pages; Soft cover has a black spine with white lettering. Michigan characters come in all shapes and species, including the talented and charming Clifford. Clifford is quite accomplished. He’s an abstract painter, a dancer and the subject of a published biography, and goes on statewide tours to spread the message of empathy. He also has four hooves and a tail. Clifford , also known as “Clifford of Drummond Island, ” is the Morgan horse owned, trained — and cherished — by Nancy J. Bailey, who also penned his biography of the same name. Clifford was a replacement for what she called the “perfect horse, ” Sharolyn, who died of a horse disease eight weeks after she acquired her. Soon afterward Bailey met a 2-year-old colt named Buckets who wasn’t exactly what she was looking for: He was a “mouthy chestnut colt. ” However, Bailey wanted a horse, and maybe it was better to get something different from the mare she mourned. Eventually Bailey gave Buckets the name Clifford after her great uncle, who had been a redhead, too, and whose descendants populating Drummond Island also were redheads. Thus began Bailey’s introduction into life with Clifford, also a relative neophyte to the human-horse experience. “I was new to horses, ” she said, “and he was new to the world. ”Clifford provided plenty of comic relief. Bailey’s dad and uncle once were working on a gazebo, digging postholes and other tasks. Clifford, according to Bailey, found the whole construction process fascinating. If he found a stray board lying anywhere, he’d pick up the board and move it. Another time, her dad and uncle were on hands and knees, looking down into a posthole, when Clifford joined in by lowering his head and checking out the posthole as well. A terrific true-life story of a special horse and the special woman who has helped him express himself.
