'Finding Home' tells American stories

-A A +A
By Harold Morgan

“Home to me is where your family is. Home is where you feel happy. Home is where you get along. Home is where you get help.” — Kathy Morgan, March 20, 1992, age 11.
Sometimes life gets in the way of finding home, creating home. Disruptions can run from commonplace — call them “poor choices” — to hurricanes and tornados. In “Finding Home,” former Las Vegas Optic editor and Taos resident Sally Ooms tells stories of displacement and, as her subtitle puts it, “How Americans Prevail.”
The full disclosure here is that Sally has been a close friend for more than 25 years. I couldn’t do a conventional book review. While “Finding Home” is hugely interesting and worthwhile, the decision belongs to you. Go to findinghomestories.com.
When we spoke, Sally was in Meade, Kan., population 1,500 and along Sally’s commuting route between her Kansas City birthplace and New Mexico. One county east is Greensburg, 95 percent destroyed in 2007 by the first EF5 tornado ever measured.
