About the Book

Back Home in Timber Lane is a narration of the everyday and unusual experiences that occurred during the author's seventeen years living in Timber Lane. "What challenges we faced leaving the city life behind and moving to a beautiful virgin timbered area with eighty thousand trees. It all began with remodeling and modernizing a little two-bedroom house, changing a cow path into a solid gravel roadbed and rebuilding weather-beaten fences that encompassed our twenty acres."
"During our timber existence many sad and happy experiences occurred, the disheartening disappearance of a Boy Scout from his campsite to our ultimate dream, building a new home."

About the Author

Patricia Dickinson Bowers was born and lived most of her life in Iowa. She attended Westmar College in LeMars, Iowa and after several years of secretarial employment, she married her high school sweetheart, Bernie, upon his return from three years enlistment in the navy.
Most of her married life was spent in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, resuming her secretarial skills and raising a son, David and a daughter, Sharon. After the children had left the proverbial nest, a decision was made to uproot the big city life and move to a beautiful timbered area.
Patricia had always enjoyed writing. Living amongst eighty thousand trees inspired her to write of the everyday and unusual experiences that occurred during her seventeen years at Timber Lane.
