Helga Sandburg is the youngest daughter of Carl Sandburg and his remarkable wife, Lilian Steichen. Her uncle was the great photographer Edward Steichen. Like so many other Americans today, she sought the story of her origins and inheritance, of the grandparents who were immigrants from Sweden and Luxembourg. This is the story of a daughter's search into her past, a story of beginnings and ends, of doubts and joys. It is the account of a great and glorious romance that flowered over the years and survives in this book.
