Written in unusually beautiful language, The Road to Mount Lemon is a short, easy, enjoyable read, looking at a time long ago about a spot not so very far away.

If the 2003 Mount Lemmon fire taught us anything, it is that buildings are ephemeral—but memories endure. In this delightful book, Mary Ellen Barnes, the daughter of Summerhaven pioneer Tony Zimmerman, shares memories of her resourceful father and growing up in a special time and place. Readers will learn how love and hard work transform lives and landscape.
