"I have lived in this valley 30-some years and I KNOW this Valley and there were things in this book I didn't know! I liked that the pictures and stories were from personal collections and not the same as everyone usually reads or sees. Its not a ‘beginning to end’ book, I can pick it up anywhere." Mike Munz, Valley local
"...You've made a major contribution to history and community in Marble [Crystal River Valley] and your next volume should be even more fun. Congratulations!" ~ Andrew Gulliford, local author- professor at Ft. Lewis College, Durango, CO.
"We love your book of 'Memoirs'...the 27 years we lived in the Crystal Valley were the happiest in my life and our Hot Springs home was and always will be HOME to me." ~ Linda and Kelly Grange
“Charlotte- what a wonder you are...I can't say 'thank you' enough for your book." ~ Ruth "Ditty" Perry, lifetime Crystal Valley resident
“I just moved to Marble and wanted to get to know something about this part of the world I just moved to. Charr’s book was exactly what I needed! What amazing information, I felt like I really got to know the people in the book, and got to know the history of the valley. And what better way to learn than by listening to ‘old timer’ stories.” ~ Kristie May, new Crystal Valley resident
“It’s because of people like Charlotte and me that there is a (Carbondale) history. And we’re not even from here! We [just] have that spark that works for history.” Anita Witt, local author, entertainer and Missouri Heights resident.
