Description

Between 1933 and 1942, the Civilian Conservation Corps, 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. In his latest book, acclaimed environmental 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.

Description
"Between 1933 and 1942, almost one hundred thousand young men enrolled in the Civilian Conservation Corps fanned out across Wisconsin to live and work in rustic camps from the Northwoods to the Driftless Area. Along the way, the CCC broke new ground for state and county parks, improved soil conditions on farmland, and restored the health of forests around the state...Jerry Apps's comprehensive account of the CCC in Wisconsin uncovers the remarkable stories of those whose hard work, ingenuity, and daring led to the creation and success of one of the most extraordinary government programs in American history." -- back cover.
