Some of the photographs in this book were made in Georgia and Louisiana, but most were made in Florida while helping Charlotte Lee develop film her father, Bud, exposed but never processed. Thanks for posing, Charlotte. Macon York helped identify the wooden letterpress type Jay Gould brought down from Minnesota. Jim Sherraden at Hatch Show Print has provided much guidance in person and over the phone. Thanks, Betsy Williamson, for encouraging me to make this book.
On the back cover of the book is this line from the letter, "Do you remember the trees we cut down for fires we never burned?"
