Description - Circling Back Home by Darcy Lipp-Acord

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. Written over ten years, these essays compose a picture of endurance and grace as the author addresses her history and finds her way home.
