Lost Without the River is an interesting memoir that pulls at your emotions. The book is well written and the memoir is descriptive.

I enjoyed reading this poignant memoir of a woman who grew up in northeastern South Dakota during the 1940s-50s. All her descriptions were very vivid. What is so interesting is that long after she and her siblings left the farm, they all carried vestiges of the land with them. Times were difficult for her parents, caring for a large family during the Great Depression. I empathized with her mourning as she continued to make annual trips back to her home town how time eroded people and places, left alive only in memory. I enjoyed the picture the author included and the partial family genealogy. A memorable read!
