In the beginning, the Caro area was part of the vast forests that covered Michigan. It was home to the Chippewa Indians, among others; but by the 1840s, the timberland with cork pine had attracted lumbermen. They were soon followed by pioneers ready to farm the now open fields. By 1855, the settlement of what would become the village of Caro had begun. The great forest fires of 1871 and 1881 made land clearing and farming even easier, and agriculture became the financial engine that drove the growth and prosperity of the area. By the beginning of the 20th century, Caro was the vibrant and busy seat of Tuscola County. The Caro Area shows this evolution through photographs of all aspects of rural and village life from settlement through World War II.

Pat Frazer is an accomplished genealogist and local history researcher as well as an active member of the boards of the Caro Area District Library and the Caro Historical Commission. Mark Keller, a native of Caro, is a professional historian with expertise in the genealogy and history of Great Lakes Native Americans. In addition, he has spent his lifetime researching and collecting Caro history. Marcia Dievendorf, whose interests also lie in history, is the director of the Caro Area District Library. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

    My Family began in Caro, MI! We loved going through the book together and learning of how Caro came to be. I'm so grateful that the Authors decided to put a book like this together. It's a great book!

    OK, it may be the only book on Caro ever which makes it even better. Like Mayberry RFD with internet.

    It's a wonderful book, and one may tell that a lot of effort when into creating and writing it. It will be a relic for the ages. I often use it as a resource and enjoy the many spectacular pictures in it. I often thumb through it's 125 black and white pages . . . I greatly enjoy the way it was put together and the way the cover and each page looks! Thanks . . . Pat, Mark, and Marcia for your time and commitment to our local history. The book is a beautiful story about our city.
