Kathy FlippoThe Books of the late Kathy Flippo:

As many users of know, J. R. Simpson & Associates, Inc., began publishing the books of Kathy Flippo in 1995. Unfortunately, Kathy’s health began to deteriorate following the death of her river captain husband Pat several years ago. She died On March 11, 2014, in California from complications with pneumonia. I was publisher for four of Kathy’s books, and now am the sole source. As the wife of a river captain whose tour of duty lasted 50 years, she spent much time on the boats. She was a true font of knowledge of the river and water transportation. For those who hope to acquire her books, the three are listed below at reduced prices. Also, I am offering the three-book collection in one package at a greatly reduced price. The supply is limited. This is a great addition to anyone interested in the Upper Mississippi River. Even those who own some of her books now have an opportunity to buy for their children or friends.

Back To Beaver Island by Kathy Flippo Back To Beaver Island (2001) by Kathy Flippo
The book is a sequel to Beaver Island Remembered. This soft cover book has 216 pages and supports more than 250 illustrations. In it the author delves more deeply into the lives of those residents of Beaver Island. The author invited all of the surviving island residents and their families back to the island for a get-together. The event produced hundreds of new pictures and tons of new information. Even if you own Beaver Island Remembered, this is a good book to have. The book reveals life on an island that became populated in the middle of the 1800s and remained so through the 1900s. It covers both the good and the hard times.
