Jerry Apps: A Farm Story

Special | 1h 28m 57s | Video has closed captioning.

The portrait of a farm boy's childhood in Waushara County is told through his personal memories and photos from the community. Apps evokes memories of a time when almost as many Americans lived on farms as in cities, and examines day-to-day rural life. Fieldwork was done with horses, cows were milked by hand, lanterns were the source of light, and community was essential for survival.
