Old Farm Country Cookbook by Jerry Apps and Susan Apps Bodilly
From Barb Steinhorst • 5 months ago – On Larry Mueller Show website – Wisconsin Public Radio
“An interesting, educational, useful and comforting book. Thank You Jerry and Susan for your gift of recall and your writing talents producing books that keep the precious past alive for those who were there and those who wonder.”

Elsbeth wrote, “You have no idea how involved,immersed is a better description, about how deeply absorbed I was in reading One Room Schools. I had a difficult time putting it down. I relived my country school days. A total of 6 years – 2 schools that I taught totally and then 2 years teaching from November to May helping out! I also attended country schools for 5 years – we moved around a lot as my Dad helped cheese makers with problems. I’m so glad I met you and that you wrote the book! That is a great love displayed, also with family reflections and so much effort from many sources. We must be close in our devotion to all involved with the country school theme.” (Christmas Card – December 2016)

Betty wrote, “I taught for 18 1/2 years. I loved your book and I couldn’t wait to hear your talk tonight. Have a great school year!”
