A first book offering by a Missouri-born author is the work of a man who spent more than 50 years pursuing his forest lookout tower hobby. Throughout that time, he collected information, pictures, and stories about these lookouts. A few years ago, he was urged to convert his boxes of materials into a book and to not let his memories and wealth of information be lost. The result of that work is “Remembering Missouri’s Lookout Towers – A Place above the Trees” by Bob Frakes.
