In Population: 485, Michael Perry introduced us to small town life as a firefighter and EMT in rural Wisconsin. Truck: A Love Story took us on a year-long ride as Perry struggled to fix his 1951 International pickup and his love life. In Coop, he shared the joys and challenges of his ramshackle farmhouse, thirty-seven acres, and a new baby. Now he returns with the tale of Tom Hartwig, an old-timer best known locally for building and firing homemade cannons in Visiting Tom.
