About the Book

This is a book of awareness and love. The correspondence between two girlhood friends from Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan launched the “anniecat chronicles” project. With thoughts and events to share, they embraced email and bridged the miles and the years between Michigan and South Carolina. A wealth of remembrances, including Campfire Girls, failed romances, class reunions and their 80th birthdays, are recorded with splendid humor and devotion to narrative. Interwoven in the chronicles are the author’s short stories and poetry, her tribute to the beauty of life in the northwoods and to the joy of family.

About the Author

Joan Rust does not call herself a writer. She states that her journals and letters reflect observations of her daily life in a setting rich with beauty and challenges, Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Jo considers sharing family history with her children and grandchildren, through her stories, an ongoing and fulfilling trust. She is a graduate of Western Michigan University in Kalamazaoo, Michigan where she squeezed in one creative writing class among the business requirements. She wanted to be a cellist or a dancer. In her 80th year, it is a bit late for those dreams, but she has assembled a collection of scenes, events, people, creatures and emotions which do credit to that one fling with creative writing.
