The "Freedom's Tree" story focuses on people who've moved to a small town that's going through difficult times. A synopsis on the book's website includes the following: “Perceived as invaders, newcomers arrived in Rock Creek at God's direction, while a murderer escaped detection and residents presumed another's guilt.”
According to Lippincott, he was in education for 43 years in all, including stints as a teacher and principal. Retiring in 2010, his last 10 years were at Coronado, where he was the English Department head for two years, coordinated the school's Writers' Club and started the Pay It Forward Club.
Now 70 and living in Fountain, Lippincott said this is his first book - one that he worked on for 48 years.
