9780061363504: Population: 485- Meeting Your Neighbors One Siren at a Time (P.S.)

Welcome to New Auburn, Wisconsin, where the local vigilante is a farmer's wife armed with a pistol and a Bible, the most senior member of the volunteer fire department is a cross-eyed butcher with one kidney and two ex-wives (both of whom work at the only gas station in town), and the back roads are haunted by the ghosts of children and farmers. Against a backdrop of fires and tangled wrecks, bar fights and smelt feeds, Population: 485 is a comic and sometimes heartbreaking true tale leavened with quieter meditations on an overlooked America.

About the Author:

Michael Perry is a humorist, radio host, songwriter, and the New York Times bestselling author of several nonfiction books, including Visiting Tom and Population: 485, as well as a novel, The Jesus Cow. He lives in northern Wisconsin with his family and can be found online at www.sneezingcow.com.

From AudioFile:

After a twelve-year hiatus, Michael Perry returned to his childhood home of New Auburn, Wisconsin, and proceeded to join the village's volunteer fire and rescue department. Saving homes and lives proved to be a noteworthy experience, thus providing direction in his own life. In a storyteller's tone, Perry describes how pulling victims from car wrecks, rescuing families from burning homes, and responding to numerous 911 calls regarding people (and animals and birds) in dire need went far beyond obligation. He describes how small-town life and volunteer work became part of a joyful and heart-wrenching reality that changed his life forever for the better. B.J.P.
