      By Jerry Apps


      "Apps is a man of ideas who is sensitive to the touch, the smells, and the feel of doing things by hand, today and a hundred years ago,” from the foreword by Senator Gaylord Nelson


      Originally published in 1970, The Land Still Lives is the first book by Wisconsin's greatest rural philosopher, Jerry Apps. Written when he was still a young agriculture professor at the University of Wisconsin, The Land Still Lives was readers' first introduction to Jerry's farm in central Wisconsin, called Roshara, and the surrounding community of Skunk's Hollow.


      This special 50th-anniversary edition features a new epilogue, in which Jerry revisits his philosophy of caring for the land so it in turn will care for us. This is vintage Apps, essential reading for Jerry's legions of fans and for all who, like Jerry, wish "to develop a relationship with nature and all its mystery and wonder."
