Michael Olson interviews author Jacqueline Dougan Jackson about her work.

Jackie is the author of over a dozen books, including three about the family dairy farm in Wisconsin that her grandfather began at the turn of the 20th century. The Round Barn, Volume I, and the upcoming Volume II, are the culmination of years of dedicated collection, research, and synthesis using family materials, historical sources, and cultural artifacts. Begun with a promise to Grampa when Jackie was just fifteen, The Round Barn shares farm stories spanning almost seven decades.

Meet Daddy Dougan, Ron, Vera and the kids: Joan, Patsy, Jackie and Craig; the hired men, neighbors, and the town beyond. With dozens of authentic photos, this book is touching, funny, tragic, and warm ?truly ?A Biography of an American Farm.?
