By Peter Hitt
PALACE IN THE FIELDS Growing up on a Farm is the firsthand recollections of the youngest member of a family of six, in an organized anecdotal style, who moved from suburbia to a tobacco farm in southern Maryland during a ten-year period in the 1940’s and 1950’s. The farmhouse turned out to be “Dent’s Palace”, a former colonial plantation manor that the parents restored to an elegant showplace. The author was six years old when the move occurred. Farm play and work activities as well as interaction with the unforgettable characters who were their parents, siblings, neighbors, acquaintances, and friends , provides a unique slice of Americana which probably does not exist anymore.
