Girlhood on the ranch

Sally Gale of Chileno Valley Ranch talks with her 94-year-old mother, Anita Dolcini, about Anita’s life growing up on a dairy ranch in West Marin. She describes life on the ranch, speaking Swiss on the playground, helping cook breakfast for the hired men over a wood stove, and what it was like to be a young country girl attending UC Berkeley in the 1930s.
