ACROSS
THE FENCE

"Across the Fence" is a weekly column by Howard Sherpe, who lives in Madison, Wisconsin. He writes about his experiences growing up on a dairy and tobacco farm near Westby, Wisconsin; the sights, sounds, and smells of nature; everyday life - past, present, and future; service related issues, and his Vietnam experience as an Army medic. Hopefully his stories will stir your memories, incite your curiosity to explore the world around you, and examine the issues facing the world today.

COMING SOON!
Around October 1, 2006

Seventy of the early "Across the Fence" newspaper columns
will be available in this 204 page book, complete with photos.

Published by Prairie Viking Press

Sherpe is a storyteller of a country life that has all but disappeared. Walk with him down a country lane filled with memories of an earlier time.
-Jerry Apps, author of Every Farm Tells a Story.

This collection of Howard SherpeÕs popular newspaper column is like holding a long, leisurely conversation with a trusted neighbor. Funny, lyrical and wise, SherpeÕs writing takes us to a time when life, if not exactly simpler, seemed to make more sense.
-Craig Werner, Professor at the UW-Madison and author of A Change Is Gonna Come: Music, Race & the Soul of America

Howard Sherpe is a genial tour guide as he leads you down memory lane, an armchair philosopher with a gentle sense of humor and a cheerful attitude toward life. He has a gift for finding just the right words to create vivid images of the people who have touched his life.
-Anne Short, Reminiscence Writing instructor for over 20 years
