Author House, May 22, 2009 - Biography & Autobiography - 236 pages
Clara, the Little Girl from the Prairie was born July 4, 1931 in Garfield County, Nebraska. She grew up in the prairie of central nebraska. Farm life, dust storms and the Great Depression are among the forces that shaped her childhood. She has a distinct Danish heritage, her father was born in Denmark and her maternal grandparents were both born in Denmark. These are stories of her early childhood and the changes in her life as she left her home on the prairie to become a "Career Girl". A chance meeting with a young man from Indiana led to an eventual change to "Career Mom". From that chance meeting, they have celebrated 58 anniversaries of their wedding. She raised four sons and has eight grand children and two great grand children.
