Delicately filigreed vignettes of a Wisconsin farm life from children's-book author Jackson. In 1906, when his hearing failed, Jackson's grandfather abandoned his ministry and bought a dairy farm. By 1907, he was delivering milk, the bottles stoppered with a cap imprinted &.Dougan, The Babies' Milkman. He was a conscientious farmer who ran a tight and good ship, experimented intelligently, and treated his employees with respect.

Jacqueline Dougan Jackson published her first story at age ten and has gone on to author eleven books in addition to the popular Stories from the Round Barn (Northwestern, 1998). She teaches at the University of Illinois at Springfield. These are stories with an extra voltage. Not only will they bring children from play and old men from the chimney-corner, but they will delight all who have a proper sense of a vanishing America, the America of the small independent farm with (sometimes) a Round Barn. What I love in Jackson's energetic narrative.

Jackson's saga is our most detailed history of Midwest farming and dairying from 1900 to the 1970s. The Dougan farm was a top dairy, utilizing the latest developments in crops―including the early years of alfalfa and the advent of hybrid seed corn―and the beginning of artificial insemination and proved sires. Jackson writes with warmth and empathy, and we are the fortunate beneficiaries of her work. Jacqueline Dougan Jackson is the author of fourteen books, including: Stories from the Round Barn, More Stories from the Round Barn, and the first three volumes of The Round Barn, A Biography of an American Farm.

Jacqueline Jackson, noted author of many books, says that anyone, child or adult, who wants to write meaningfully .

In this much anticipated companion volume to Stories from the Round Barn, Jackson assembles a collection of rich narratives and a cast of inspirational characters to joyously illustrate life.

The growing hybrid seed corn business is housed there.

In this much anticipated companion volume to Stories from the Round Barn, Jackson assembles a collection of rich narratives and a cast of inspirational characters to joyously illustrate life. In the tradition of Willa Cather, Jackson writes of innocence, simplicity, and what happens when both are messily shattered by the intrusion of animals, children, war, epidemics, and progress itself. With wit and compassion Jackson recollects the hardships and satisfactions of farm life as lived according to her grandfather's motto: "Life as Well as a Living."
