The Hermitage children's book series takes place on the Hogan family farm and homestead in Montgomery County, Maryland in the 1920s and 1930s. The stories are based on the childhood recollections of the author's father, and are historically accurate. The watercolor illustrations help children understand more about farm life and growing up early in the 20th century.
Books in the series include:
The Ram in the Spring and the Wolf in the Wood (currently available)
Fanny and Queen (to be published Jan 2010)
More to come!
