Welcome to the Redwood Falls Public Library
Place, a Farm, a Family
Gayla Marty, author

Redwood Falls Public Library
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.
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
