Living a Country Year: Wit and Wisdom from the Good Old Days,  by Jerry Apps

In his signature warm-hearted style, Jerry Apps traces the wisdom gained in living a country year, chronicling each month with a tale about growing up on a Midwestern dairy farm in the 1940s.  We skate with him on a frozen pond, watch him drive a hired man’s Model T at age ten and learn to ride a pony bareback.  Whether shooting off 4th of July firecrackers or overcoming stage fright at the school Christmas program, Apps wears his hard-earned wisdom lightly and accompanies each month’s tale with farm country aphorisms and the occasional recipe for good measure.  By turns witty and profound, Living a Country Year reaffirms our nation’s rural heritage.
 Hardcover, 5 x 7.5, 224 pgs.
