History will be kind to me for I intend to write it. Winston Churchill
WELCOME Welcome to the web page of The Wild Horse Creek Company, (formerly known as the Pienpack Company) owned by Peter Osborne. In the summer of 2016 we moved our operations from Easton, Pennsylvania to Red Cloud, Nebraska and set up our company headquarters here. For our clients back in the East, we continue to maintain an office in New Jersey and commute back and forth regularly to work on various projects and commissions. Our company’s mission is to provide exciting journeys of discovery into our nation’s history. We do that through a number of venues. Over the last seven years we have been focused on writing institutional histories for clients on state parks, local preserves, and museums on a fee basis. Subjects have included the Five Mile Woods Preserve in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania, and the state parks at Washington Crossing along the Delaware River. For these books, and others, we conducted all the required research, wrote, designed and managed the projects through publication for institutional benefactors. In addition, marketing and fulfillment programs were formulated. We have also written or compiled histories of important sites, cemeteries, memoirs, commemorative books and booklets. Our books always reveal interesting and fascinating stories. We love telling them because the essence of history is remembering. An important advantage that our firm offers is that we begin with an idea and see the process through to the end when a copy of the book is placed in your hands. We bring the dream of clients to reality. Initially we meet with potential clients and get to know what they are looking for and then create a proposal. Depending on what the needs are, generally a 250-350-page book can take a year to complete. A standard contract is drawn up that outlines what we will provide, and once started, the client receives reports every two weeks along with drafts of the book. After final approval, the book is sent to the printer. Our printer can print one copy, or one thousand copies, as we use the latest print-on-demand technology which does not require the maintenance of a large expensive inventory, and allows for fulfillment by Amazon and other on-line retailers like Barnes and Noble. It is surprisingly inexpensive, especially when printing low quantities. We also offer other journeys of discovery through various presentations and have been providing programming to civic, historical, fraternal, church groups, seminars, Elderhostel, Road Scholar, and various meetings for more than thirty-five years. In addition, we have designed interpretive exhibits for regional historical groups. Thank you for visiting our site and if you have any questions or would like further information about our programs, projects or commissions please feel free to contact us. You can also follow us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/pienpackcompany. As always, we are always looking for new horizons to explore and seeking new commissions. Peter Osborne President
