      By Jerry Apps

      In this continuation of the Jerry Apps life story begun in his childhood memoir Limping through Life, Wisconsin's celebrated rural storyteller shares stories from his years at the University of Wisconsin-Madison from 1957 to 1995, when he left the university to lecture and write fulltime. During those years Apps experienced the turmoil of protests and riots at the UW in the 1960s, the struggles of the tenure process and faculty governance, and the ever-present pressure to secure funding for academic research and programs. Colorful characters, personal photos, and journal entries from the era enrich this account of an unexpected campus career.
