Mary Ellen Barnes Author- THE ROAD TO MOUNT LEMMON: A FATHER, A FAMILY, AND THE MAKING OF SUMMERHAVEN, a memoir

      Mary Ellen Barnes tells how her father Tony resigned from teaching 1943 to devote his career to developing the mountain oasis of Summerhaven in THE ROAD TO MOUNT LEMMON: A FATHER, A FAMILY, AND THE MAKING OF SUMMERHAVEN, a beguiling memoir of the Catalina Mountains.  The stories within provide an intimate view of a mountain community over the course of nearly 60 years- ” a view that few people have shared but one that all can appreciate.”

      “In August I was notified that THE ROAD TO MOUNT LEMMON had made it through several review rounds and was a finalist for the 2010 ONE BOOK AZ title.  My book wasn’t voted in, but I was honored to be nominated.”
