    What a wonderful little read this was! My daughter bought this book for me for Christmas. Being from Pittsfield originally, she knew I would like it and she was right. It was a great little trip down memory lane. I can remember going into Mr. Dysart’s store as a child and I really miss places like that. If you lived in a small town in the 60’s like I did, you will really like this!

    I read this book, Caring Enough to Succeed: The Story of LA Dysart in Pittsfield, ME, with great interest! The book was given to me by a family friend who knew the Dysart family very well. This book is clear and concise! It is just long enough to remind one of small town life in New England in the 40’s and 50’s and not too long for those who aren’t historians. I like how he used first hand interviews and the anecdotes from Mr. Dysart’s sales and service over the years. I really felt like I got to know Mr. Dysart and he reminded me of my childhood and some of the people I knew as a boy. Bravo to Mr. Gower for shedding some light on a little known man who should be more well known and Bravo to Mr. Dysart for having such an impact on this town and it’s citizens!! It’s 38 pages of pleasant time travel!
