The Midwest Farmer's Daughter

Purdue University Press

The Midwest Farmer's Daughter: In Search of an American Icon, published by Purdue University Press, unearths the untold history and renewed cultural currency of an American icon at a time when fully 30% of new farms in the United States are woman-owned.

WBAA’s Mike Loizzo talks about the book with author Zachary Michael Jack, associate professor of English and member of the Urban and Suburban Studies and Environmental Studies faculties at North Central College in Naperville, Illinois.
