Bookcover of the Civilian Conservation Corp by Jerry Apps

Monday, September 9 through Friday, September 13, 2019. Read by Jim Fleming.

In his latest book, acclaimed Wisconsin writer Jerry Apps presents the first comprehensive history of the CCC in Wisconsin. Apps guides readers around the 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 detail as well 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.
