Leaves From The Tree:

Yes, there was a "lone tree". A tall stately elm which somehow grew up by itself in the middle of the Iowa prairie and used as a landmark by people migrating across the country. Still alive when I graduated Lone Tree High in 1959, it died of Dutch Elm Disease sometime in the '60s and all that remains is a stone marker with plaque.
