Open a Microsoft Works word file

Hi there,
One of my online students has sent me a couple of 'Works' word processed files. Short of buying Works to open them, is there any other way I can read them?

Your help would be much appreciated.

I apologise for wasting Forum space. When I tried to open these from Explorer it wouldn't let me and basically said 'where is the programme they were created in' or 'go and buy it'.

But I just tried by opening them from within Word (2003) and found the file extension there so I can see them.
