Summary
Enjoy a portrait of Wisconsin farm life as seen through the eyes of a boy growing up in Waushara County during the 1930s and 1940s. Acclaimed Wisconsin historian and author Jerry Apps evokes memories of a time when almost as many Americans lived on farms as in cities, and examines day-to-day rural life. Fieldwork was done with horses, cows were milked by hand, lanterns were the source of light, and community was essential for survival. Apps explores topics such as acceptance of ethnic and religious diversity, dependence on neighbors, changing seasons, simple pleasures, one-room schools and the forces that shaped the Midwestern values of hard work and personal responsibility
