Mona Phipps describes growing up in the state of Oklahoma in the 1930’s and 40’s, and the rich family tapestry of being a 12th generation American. From visits to her ancestral home in Kentucky, to working in her father’s “great depression” era bakery, from the bloody post civil-war stories told by her grandfather, to the great dust bowl of 1930, the author takes the reader on a touching and heartfelt journey into the experience of growing up amidst the red dirt fields of early 20th century Oklahoma.
