Stories of Midwestern farm living, as told from the women who live it.
What this website is about...
I, Jeanette, am aspiring to author a book entitled "The Real Farm Wives of South Dakota", with subsequent publications for other Midwestern states (Iowa, North Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, etc.). My dear friend and editor, Kelli, is assisting me in this endeavor.
Why do you care...? I NEED YOUR MEMORIES / stories to put into the book!
South Dakota (and the Midwest in general) is rich in farming history with women playing an integral role in the day-to-day operations. This book is a labor of love, and we'd like to give a voice to your farm memories in order to carry on the legacy that you have lived as a farm wife. It's important to us, that your wisdom be passed down and your memories of triumph, tragedy, fun and laughter, joy, awe and inspiration be heard.
See the "Get Involved" page for details and the "Contact" page for the submission form or email us at: MyStory@RealFarmWife.com
NOTE: we are not looking for lifetime narratives, but rather
very specific memories / incidents that happened.
