Eliza Blue's New Book, "Accidental Rancher"


In The Moment … May 20, 2020 Show 821 Hour 1

When Eliza Blue first came to South Dakota, she didn't think she would stay long. She was a city girl, a suburban woman, and a successful folk musician with gigs and albums and fans. Why on earth would she plant roots in northwestern South Dakota (one of the most remote areas in the country) raising chickens and herding sheep? 
Eliza's new book is called Accidental Rancher. It's published by South Dakota Magazine press. It's a book that honors the work of ranching, life in South Dakota, and family. It's a clear and frankly beautiful exploration of the delicate moments that make up our lives, from a toddler's steps across a beat-up ranch house floor to how a menagerie of farm animals reflects our human selves in ways that both surprise and delight.
