Devil’s Lake Wisconsin and the Civilian Conservation Corps

Devil’s Lake Wisconsin and the Civilian Conservation Corps

from 18.00

by Robert J. Moore

Thousands of young men embarked on the adventure of a lifetime when they joined the Civilian Conservation Corps during the Great Depression. Service at Wisconsin’s popular state park offered notoriety absent at most camp assignments. While most of the CCC work around the country was in remote forests and farmlands, the Devil’s Lake tourists could view CCC project activity each day, forging that labor into an essential part of the park experience. Historian Robert J. Moore interviews veterans and mines the archives to preserve this legacy so that the gasps of wonder at nature’s marvels remain mixed with respect for the men who helped bring them forth.  Soft cover, 157 pages,
