Synopsis

A memoir.
A passion for star-gazing often starts in a modest way, with a small telescope. For some, that modest beginning becomes a theme that resonates through a lifetime. Mr. Olcott's Skies is the story of one such beginning, and of how a small telescope and an old book set the author on a long and often indirect road to the stars. It's the tale of a journey that has only just begun, and of the discovery that you really do need to look back the way you've come, to understand where you are.

Retired from the Air Force and currently employed as a County Legal Clerk, Thomas enjoys his new found love for Christ in his writings and through the fellowship of his friends at Valley Baptist Church of San Rafael, California. He has been blessed with a step-daughter, two grand daughters, and three great grandchildren who, though distant in miles, are always close in his heart. He also has a sister who knew the secret of the mighty love of Christ as a child, and has shared it with those she has known through her compassion and beautiful heart.
