dc.description.abstract <p><i>Someday, when I lived in Frost</i> is a collection of personal essays about a young man growing up in Southern Minnesota in the 1980s and '90s. Part memoir, part family history, the essays explore the complex relationships between family members living 100 miles and a world apart. Set primarily in the author's hometown of Rochester and Frost, the small farming community where his parents were born and raised, the essays chronicle the author's attempts to connect his rural roots with his suburban, liberal arts college experience. Interviews with relatives offer oral histories of Depression-era folk music in northern Iowa, 1960s-era Marine Corps boot camp, and the landing of the first official ground troops in Vietnam in 1965.</p>
