Book Description:

At a time when values of frugality, home, family, and care of the land seem increasingly absent, one woman looks to her past to create a life of significance for her family. Her search takes her back to the prairie of her grandmothers, who survived personal hardships and lived off what the land provided. Lipp-Acord mourns the loss of one child and celebrates the births of others, all while balancing her own desire to put down roots with her husband's life as a ranch hand.

Author Biography
Lipp-Acord, Darcy (Author)
Linda M. Hasselstrom received her bachelor's degree in English and journalism from the University of South Dakota in 1965 and her master's degree from the University of Missouri in 1969. She then taught communications at Black Hills State College in Spearfish, S.D. She also taught poetry and fiction as a writer-in-schools for the South Dakota Arts Council.

An accomplished author and poet, Hasselstrom founded Lame Johnny Press with the goal of publishing the poetry, fiction, and nonfiction works of writers in the Great Plains states. The press published 23 books before it closed down in 1985.

Hasselstrom was named "Author of the Year" by the South Dakota Hall of Fame in 1989. Some of her books include Windbreak; The Book Book: A Publishing Handbook; Roadkill; and Going Over East--Reflections of a Woman Rancher, which won the Fullcrum American Writing Award in 1987.

Linda Hasselstrom runs the family ranch in South Dakota and teaches freshman English at the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology.
