About the Book

  “Happenings in the Hollow” is a description of what it was like growing up during the difficult economic time of the 1930s.  The book does not move into modern times but concentrates on the author’s youthful life experiences.  It should be enjoyable reading for those people that recall those days and for younger people who want to understand how people lived happily when deprived of many of the amenities of life. 

About the Author

  The author grew up in the hill country of southwestern Wisconsin and never lost his love for the land.

  As true of many small farms during the depression years of the 1930s, the author’s family was not well to do.  However, the author received a good education and became a professor and chair of the geography/geology department at his alma mater, the University of Wisconsin-Platteville.  His master’s degree was earned at the University of Colorado-Boulder and post masters studies were done at the University of Oklahoma-Norman.

  The author retired in 1994 and now lives with his wife, Belva, in Lancaster, Wisconsin.  They are the parents of three children: Seth, Philip and Ann.
