Apps has also written several education books including Teaching From the Heart, Mastering the Teaching of Adults, and Study Skills for Adults Returning to School. Among his many popular books about Wisconsin’s heritage, the most recent is his Ames County series, starting with The Travels of Increase Joseph.

In first grade I attended a one-room country school along with a friend who I've known since we were little. I bought this book to give to her for Christmas but after I looked at it and read certain parts, I decided that it just wasn't interesting enough to give as a gift.
