It Runs in the Family :

Richard Manning was raised on a piece of farmland in Michigan, in a family of working people and Christian fundamentalists. Manning's father was a jack of many trades: farmer, carpenter, builder, power lineman, factory worker, small businessman. His mother concealed her own childhood's darkness beneath a religious faith that explained away uncertainty, illness, and tragedy.

Manning grew up learning how to work and what to believe - but came to understand his family's seemingly-normal facade as a mask for troubling secrets.

It Runs in the Family is the story of Manning's journey away from his family, one that ranges from their Michigan farm to the fire-ravaged wilderness of Montana, and finally to a remote village in Panama, where he comes to pursue a past he had vowed to leave behind. Linking his own life with the larger story of his family, the land they inhabited, and the right-wing fundamentalist politics gaining ground in America, Richard Manning offers a singular memoir.
