Twodot Books

The cow is pregnant, and attempting to give birth. 

But there are complications, and the rancher pulls out tools, including chains, a hammer, and a chisel. 

Gail Jenner saw it in her own barn, and tells the story in one of the essays in the book she edited, Ankle High and Knee Deep: Women Reflect on Western Rural Life.

The title tells you plenty, and Gail Jenner joins us to tell you about the process of collecting the remarkable women and remarkable stories of the book.
