Description
A wry memoir about a family farm, a father, and a daughter, and why it's so hard to go home again. Debra Marquart grew up on a family farm in rural North Dakota--on land her family had worked for generations. From the earliest age she knew she wanted out; surely life had more to offer than this unyielding daily grind, she thought. But she was never able to abandon it completely. In this distinctive memoir, she chronicles this process of flight and return--not only from and to a particular landscape, but to respect and admiration for her father. Poet Marquart offers a deeply intelligent rumination on the meaning of native ground, on freedom and security, and on the forging of identity.--From publisher description.
