Nancy Joyner: "Honoring Choices" ~ Eliza Blue: Rancher, Musician and Writer

Tuesday, May 26, 2020 - Nancy Joyner is the President of Honoring Choices North Dakota, a non profit organization that provides education about advance care planning. During the crisis, people are home and spending more time with families. It’s the perfect time to talk about what they want in the event they become incapacitated. ~~~ As the country’s leaders balance restarting the economy with public health concerns, Mark Trahant, editor of Indian Country Today, looks back on the Spanish Flu pandemic. ~~~~When Eliza Blue first came to South Dakota, she didn't think she would stay long. She was a city girl, a suburban woman, and a successful folk musician with gigs and albums and fans. Why on earth would she plant roots in northwestern South Dakota (one of the most remote areas in the country) raising chickens and herding sheep? She explains in a conversation with South Dakota Public Broadcasting’s Lori Walsh, as they discuss her new book, “Accidental Rancher.” We also share an essay from Eliza on this year’s lambing season.
