About the Author:

Helen Mead Blakeslee is the granddaughter of Edmond D. Potter. The letters contained in the book have been handed down to her and she wants to share them with the world. Helen is not only a writer, but she has invented several travel games. Trav-L-Bingo, Trav-L-Derby, Trav-L-Grams and Trav-L-Bingo Roo while she and her husband, Clare, traveled extensively around the country. The games have proved most popular and have been marketing in various stores in the United States, Canada, and Australia and also used by several oil companies as promotions. The Cascade Township woman often reads the letters of Edmond and Emeline Potter, who both died before she was born. The letters tell her much about the Civil War, her grandparents and other long-departed family members. She was a great traveler and loved learning about the wonders of the United States. She especially loved the beauty of the Upper Peninsula and the animals surrounding their summer home there. Helen is 101 and a half as of July 2009.
