Reviews - What do customers think about Rural Routes & Ruts: Roaming the Road of Rural Life?

Rural Routes Roams Readers Down Reminiscent Paths  Feb 21, 2005
The author uses several of his own child and adult experiences, of growing up in a community that no longer exists, to describe the evolution of Wisconsin's rural countryside and its people. The basis of his own experiences are combined with observations and reflections Schultz has made about rural Wisconsin during his 29 years of work as a journalist - the last 17 with The Country Today, an Eau Claire-based rural living newspaper.

The photographs Schultz has taken and used in the book capture the life of the rural countryside, and cause readers to pause and reflect what life in this part of the country is all about. The pictures, in isolation, also serve as "story."

During presentations to school and library groups about Rural Routes and Ruts, Schultz is often interrupted by older people saying, "I remember life like that," and younger people saying, "I'm glad I've learned about life like that." After a reading of the book, readers may find themselves in a discussion of the history of rural Wisconsin and the direction in which it's going.

In general, Rural Routes and Ruts: Roaming the Roads of Rural Life is quickly becoming a center of discussion about rural Wisconsin - its past, its present and its future.
A treasure trove of memories   Dec 8, 2004
Rural Routes & Ruts: Roaming The Roads Of Rural Life is an homage to America's sadly fading beautiful rural countryside, and the homes, people, and way of life that form an integral part of it. Filled with black-and-white photographs and simple vignettes of daily life in the backwoods - from walking in the buff to reach a field shower, to corn-harvest ruts pressed so deep in the road that small animals can wander inside them never to be seen again, to hunting as a rite of passage, celebrated by preparing and eating one's kill. Heartwarming, bringing the travails of daily life to vivid reality, Rural Routes & Ruts is a treasure trove of memories for anyone who wants to revisit the days of country living, or wonders what it's like.
Rural Routes and Ruts  Oct 21, 2004
A wonderful book about growing up on a dairy farm in Wisconsin. Every word of the book rings so true with my childhood and upbringing. The farmer has so long been overlooked and this books honors the profession as it should be. I highly recommend this book.
Inspiring author  Oct 21, 2004
The author seems to have an insight to growing up in a rural area that is very familar to me. I couldn't put the book down. If you like Population 485, you'll love this book.
