Charlotte Lyter Mankin lives in the Sierra Nevada foothills of California's famous Gold Country. She enjoys collecting Native American art, John Wayne pictures, barn pictures and lighthouse scenes.
At one time she and her husband Charlie obedience-trained German Shepherds, winning many trophies. When she was in the hospital, her husband brought her three trophies hidden behind his back for a surprise. Years ago Charlotte won the "Volunteer of the Year" award at the VA Hospital in Reno, Nevada. Her title was "Popcorn lady' as she operated the popcorn machine for the staff,visitors,patients and volunteers. Before retiring she joined AmeriCorp and worked under the auspicious of The Child Abuse Prevention Council.
Today she may be found doing research about her second cousin, four times removed, Benjamin Lundy, a Pre-Civil War abolitionist.
It is her goal to share the information with others through her new ebook, "Benjamin Lundy's Last Walk." Others may be interested in how he fought through his pen, paper, and lectures to free the slaves from bondage.
