By Jerry Apps

In his latest book, acclaimed environmental writer Jerry Apps presents the first comprehensive history of the Civilian Conservation Corps and its work in Wisconsin. Between 1933 and 1942, the CCC, a popular New Deal relief program, was at work across America. During the Great Depression, young men lived in rustic CCC camps planting trees, cutting trails, and reversing the effects of soil erosion.

Apps guides readers around the CCC's work in the Badger State, from the Northwoods to the Driftless Area, creating a map of where and how more than 125 CCC camps left indelible marks on the landscape.

Captured in rich are the voices of the CCC boys who, by preserving Wisconsin's natural beauty, not only discovered purpose in their labor but founded an enduring legacy of environmental stewardship.
