Oak Grove
(Publish America)
2004, 158 pp.


The setting of Oak Grove is in western Missouri on eight acres of land, often called "an acreage", in a community known as Oak Grove.  Enjoy the adventures and antics of Petey Arbuckle and his siblings as they explore the acreage, house, outbuildings, surrounding countryside and western U.S.  Growth of these children is marginally evident over the three-year span of this story; sibling rivalry a fact of life; pranks, wit and one-upmanship the order of the day.  Hard lessons of life are not left out and in the end become character builders.  While the stories and characters are pure fiction, the mood and attitudes depict life pretty much as it was in the Midwest during the 1950's.
