Guests: Drake Hokanson and Carol Kratz, Authors of “Purebred and Homegrown -- America’s County Fairs" It’s county fair season across America. Gardeners are trotting out their giant squashes and prized peaches. Home cooks are hoping to win a blue ribbon for their famous pie recipe. And eager young 4H-ers are hoping a good showing for the sheep and goats and cows will lead to a handsome price at auction. And then there are the politicians, shaking hands and kissing babies in the most American of venues.
