About the Author
Michigan native Lowell Thomas began his professional career as a teacher of business education in the small town of Parchment, Michigan, later working with the Midland Public Schools and Delta College. He was a co-founder of the Literacy Council of Midland County, Inc. In the 1970s, Thomas was selected as a part-time national seminar leader for the Bureau of Business and Technology in New York City. Retiring from the MPS in 1987, he became the first campus director of the Midland Campus for Great Lakes Junior College (now Davenport University). Throughout his professional career, Thomas wrote numerous articles for state and national professional publications, freelancing for the "New York Toy Buyer s Guide, Michigan Municipal Review, The Michigan Retailer, the Grand Rapids Press, " and the "Midland Daily News." His other publications include: "The Tree Still Grows in Midland, Grandpa s Stories, So Far . . . So Good; the Other Lowell Thomas Story". Lowell lives with his wife, Jane, in Gladwin County, Michigan, and in Ft. Myers, Florida.

Frank Waters did a wonderful job with his two books and there have been others but when I see Bennett St. or even pass the front steps of the old stone building of Colorado College I think of Mable Lee Barbee. In this book she left a record of her and others lives that will never be equaled. There is a sweet fragrance!
What I Didn't Like: The author doesn't always do a good job of conveying time in the book. More than once, I actually got lost and couldn't figure out what year an event was occurring in, or how old she was. Transitions aren't always smooth, such as when her brother goes from newborn to whiny toddler in a matter of a few pages. It can be jarring, but is not uncommon for first time authors. Granted, I don't actually know if this was Mabel Barbee Lee's first book, but if it was, it shows.Read more ›
