I am the author's granddaughter and was so touched to read the delightful reviews and memories of what was of one of my favorites also. I will research the inspiration for "Smiling Hill Farm" to see if I can locate the farm it was based on. I do know that my grandmother's "pioneer" books were based on her own childhood as well as research. And I thought I was one of the only people left who enjoyed her gentle, charming views of a life so many of us wished we had lived. Thank you for sharing your comments and memories!

I would love to find a copy of this book as it is one of a few books from childhood that still stands out vividly in my memory...I loved the story of generations of a family, living in the same place on Smiling Hill farm, from the first settlers up to the present (at that time in the 50's). Especially about the first family, and the stories of how they lived, making their own clothes, building their own house, making soap, cooking at a big open fireplace. I see the granddaughter of Miram Smith has entered her own review... lots of us it seems who have fond memories of this wonderful story.

I first read this book in Honduras where I was attending elementary school. I have since lost the book, but I find myself wishing I could find another copy. This is a wonderful book! I still remember how the family would make soap!! A wonderful book for children.

I read this book while doing second grade by correspondance (my parents worked in the Middle East).I cannot believe I finally have found a place that even knows the name of this book.It warms my heart to see I am not the only one nostalgic for this excellent book.

I read this book almost 30 years ago as a homeschooled 3rd grader. It's an excellent story that teaches the passage of time, life lessons, family, diligence, and, of course, reading. I bought it for my own children who are now being homeschooled.
Excellent and worth the relatively high price tag.

Such a fun book on the daily life of pioneer Americans.( Mostly German since they make sourkraut) It brings you very closely to this time in history ,written for about third graders I guess, but with details so sufficient that I actually made soup from the recipe given.

I remembered this book with fondness from my own childhood and bought it for my grandson. Obviously it has staying power. He and I agree that the many generational storyline, detailing the early struggles and the successes of a pioneer family caught our attention and held it. We liked meeting each new generation of the family and found it interesting to discover what their time was like and happened to them. I would recommend this for family reading. Janice

I READ THIS IN 1938, AND NEVER FORGOT IT. I WOULD LOVE TO FIND A COPY, AT A REASONABLE PRICE. STORIES OF PIONEER LIFE ARE FACINATING TO ME.
