college education clipart Lifelong mountain resident and talented historical writer, Rhea Francis Tetley has published a new book that’s entitled “Lake Arrowhead Chronicles.” The book deals with the history of Lake Arrowhead and  the sawmill days up to the building of Papoose Lake and many other fascinating subjects that occurred more recently.

To purchase a copy of this fascinating new book you can go to the Mountain History Museum in Lake Arrowhead on Dec. 13 when a book signing will be held. There will be several different opportunities for people to purchase an autographed copy of this new book before the holidays end and the event at the history museum in Lake Arrowhead is only one of those opportunities.

If you know someone who loves the history of the Lake Arrowhead area this new book would be a wonderful holiday gift. There will be several opportunities for people to purchase the book and have it autographed by Rhea. Books will be available at the Mountain History Museum in Lake Arrowhead on Dec. 13. Other books on the San Bernardino Mountains written by the author are also available at the museum. Books by the late historian (and longtime local teacher) Stan Bellamy are also available at the site.

Throughout the years Rhea has written several books, including “Crestline Chronicles.” If anyone knows a lot about Crestline, it’s Rhea.
She recently had a successful book signing at the Barnes and Noble in Redlands. This prolific author truly is a local mountain historian as well as a fascinating woman with a great sense of humor. If you attend the Dec. 13 event you will enjoy meeting Rhea as she enjoys the history of the local mountains and shares what she’s learned with all of us who also love to learn about the communities before we were part of the communities.
