Carole MacRobert Steele has authored two local history books. Her first book in 2006 was titled “Pictorial History of Mono Hot Springs, California”. The most recent book published in 2016 is titled “Phoebe’s House ~ A Hearst Legacy…A Pictorial History of Hacienda del Pozo de Verona, Castlewood Country Club, and Old Hearst Ranch (Pleasanton, California)” Carole loves researching and writing local histories. Her main objective is that each book be heavily illustrated with historic photographs; most of which come from her personal collection. She has begun the research and writing for her third local history… the subject matter under wraps for right now. A native Oregonian, Carole lives in Merlin with her husband.
