The book begins with the authors personal views of his early childhood and life on a little farm in rural Michigan in 1945. As you read these humorous essays keep in mind they actually happened. Some, well most, have evolved over the years into a blend of fact and fiction. As you follow along through school, a stint in the Army, marriage, raising a family, thirty years with General Motors and a second career on Mackinac Island, humor is not far behind. With friends, four highly inquisitive kids, an equally imaginative wife and the authors own array of blunders, topics are found aplenty. It only takes a bit of doctoring with half truths and the occasional lie and we have a story. Maybe it will bring back to the reader pleasant memories of times past and a few chuckles.

It becomes increasingly clear that the basis of antibiotic resistance problem among bacterial pathogens is not confined to the borders of clinical microbiology but has broader ecological and evolutionary associations. This Research Topic “Role and prevalence of antibiosis and the related resistance genes in the environment” in Frontiers in Microbiology, section Antimicrobials, Resistance and Chemotherapy, presents the examples of occurrence and diversity of antibiotic resistance genes in the wide range of environments, from the grasslands of the Colombian Andes, to the dairy farms and small animal veterinary hospitals in the United Stated, and to the various environments of Continental Europe and Indochina. Besides, various genetic mechanisms and selection/co-selection factors contributing to the dissemination and maintenance of antibiotic resistance genes are presented. The topic is finalized by the mathematical modeling approach to access the probability of rare horizontal gene transfer events in bacterial populations
