The Seven Jones Children


Narrator Winifred (Jones) Broadie was born on a Cunningham, Kansas farm, the sixth of seven children, in 1915. Here she presents a portrait of her family, the Jones family, in collaboration with three of her daughters. Her daughters, the Broadie Sisters, have adapted, arranged and recorded the authentic American songs accompanying her story.
