Product Description

About the Author

Zachary Michael Jack teaches courses in rural studies, writing, and the environment as an associate professor of English and member of the Urban and Suburban Studies and Environmental Studies faculties at North Central College in Naperville, Illinois. The author or editor of nearly twenty books, including Uncle Henry Wallace: Letters to Farm Families from Purdue University Press, Jack is a two-time nominee for the Theodore Saloutos Award for the best work in agricultural history, a nominee for the Pushcart Prize (Best of the Small Presses), and, in 2010, a runner-up in his class for the ForeWord Reviews Book of the Year Award. He is the great-grandson of pioneering conservation writer Walter Thomas Jack, whose book The Furrow and Us has been selected by scholars for inclusion in the Core Historical Literature of Agriculture. Jack is the seventh generation in his family to make a home on a farm in rural eastern Iowa, where the Jack Heritage Farm has been in continuous family ownership since 1855.
