Delicate Armor by Connie Claire Szarke

Set in the Upper Midwest, 1952-1991, Delicate Armor is the formation story of Callie Lindstrom, a feisty girl who shares a special bond with her father and his love for the outdoors. Accepted into the world of men and witness to their dreams, struggles, and sense of humor, Callie learns to navigate waves of conflict and loss while realizing her own place in the web of life. This family saga is about the tenacity of the human spirit, the natural world, and our narrator's emerging consciousness as she passes from cheeky tomboy to self-possessed woman, paying tribute to the land and to her microcosm of men.

A wonderful,sentimental journey into the past. This book describes growing up in a small town in the upper midwest in the 50's and 60's perfectly. It has the added bonus of being set in my hometown. (Slayton,MN).
