A Place, a Farm, a Family

Memory of Trees

Join us to hear Gayla’s story

Memory of Trees: A Daughter's Story of a Family Farm is the story of a farm in Pine County, Minnesota, west of the St. Croix River.

A harvest accident triggers an urban woman’s search to understand her attachment to her family’s farm and the reasons—conflict, culture, economics, and illness—that it was sold. Her search through memory leads to the alpine valley of their ancestors, ruined farm towns of the Roman Empire in North Africa, and ancient Biblical texts about land and exile. The relationship of forests, farms, and migration in Western civilization is uncovered through the example of this dairy farm in the “golden triangle” between the Mississippi and St. Croix rivers. On the journey to understanding, trees provide touchstones, connections to sacred and classical history—companions leading the way forward.

Gary Harbo was raised in Lynd, MN. When Gary was 9 years old, his parents began to save his drawings and encouraged him to pursue his talent. To this day he hasn't forgotten how great it felt to have his drawings hanging from his parents walls!

Gary Harbo is an author and illustrator of 23 exciting books for children.

Adopt a Book At the Library!

If you would like to offer direct support to the library’s collection, the Adopt a Book Program gives you the perfect opportunity. You can choose to adopt an adult or juvenile book for the library. It is a wonderful way to honor or remember someone special in your life. With your donation, the library will buy a book to be placed in the library, with a book label indicating both the donor and honoree.

Are you done reading the latest bestseller? Donate it to the library to share with others. You may also choose to adopt any book in the current collection. This program is the perfect opportunity to keep the collection at your library growing. Please contact library staff for more information.
