Product Details
Rural historian and writer Jerry Apps evokes memories of a time when almost as many Americans lived on farms as in cities, fieldwork was done with horses, cows were milked by hands, lanterns were the source of light, and community was essential for survival.

Jerry Apps is professor emeritus at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the author of more than 25 books, many of them on rural history and country life. Jerry's nonfiction books include "Every Farm Tells a Story," "Living a Country Year," "When Chores Were Done," "Ringlingville USA," and many more! 

Jerry was born and raised on a small farm in Waushara County, Wisconsin, about two miles from the land that is the subject of "Old Farm." He and his family have owned their farm Roshara since 1966, and he and his wife, Ruth, continue to live there part time. Once a small dairy farm, the property is now a tree farm with an ongoing prairie renovation.
