About the Book

In Favorite Stops, readers are taken through a series of “thin places” in the author’s life where people, places and events give a glimpse of an unexpected, mysterious realm where heaven and earth come together. Some of the vignettes are funny, some poignant, some in a dream world, all providing a brief view of an invisible, yet very real, higher power. It is a book about outdoor adventures, remarkable trips to places around the globe, and people with a strong influence on the life of a man having lived a long and good life.

About the Author

Lynn Calloway Rogers is a retired attorney, scientist, and inventor. He is author and editor of numerous articles in professional journals, is the inventor in several U.S. and foreign patents, and has spent his life reading, learning and seeking adventure throughout the U.S. and countries around the world. Named for his grandfather Calloway Rogers, Lynn was born in Oklahoma City and grew up on the family farm on the banks of the Washita River in southern Oklahoma. A member of the Chickasaw tribe of Indians, his maternal great-grandparents were original enrollees of the Chickasaw Nation before statehood, and his two-times great grandfather R. M. Harris was one of the last tribal governors. Lynn and his mother wrote several articles on the history of Governor Harris, the Chickasaw Bell, and of the Harris and Willis families appearing in the book “Pioneers of Chickasaw Nation, Indian Territory,” by Nova A. Lemons (Timbercreek Ltd. 1991). Lynn has a lifelong interest in western history, including the Lewis and Clark expedition and the Little Bighorn (Custer) battle of 1876. His professional career spanned over 45 years as a research chemist and public finance attorney, before he and his wife Gaye retired to their creekside bird sanctuary in Norman, OK. He and his wife share a blended family of four sons, six grandchildren and two cats.
