A Trip Through Downer, Minnesota

 A Trip Through Downer, Minnesota by Gretchen Johnson

by Gretchen Johnson

Stop and stay a while in this tiny town located just east of Fargo. Meet the narrator, his overbearing girlfriend, meddling mother, and the other colorful characters who reside there. Travel the pages to see the stark beauty of the prairie in winter, feel the pain of marrying the wrong person, taste the recipes in the church cookbook, and feel the fabric of the fields and faces along the way. “You’ll be surprised how much there is to see.”
