Book Illustrated by Grant Wood

Farm on the Hill (published 1936), was written by Madeline Darrough Horn and illustrated by Grant Wood.  The plot follows two young boys named Bill and Tom on a family farm in the Midwest during the mid-1930s. When this book was published, it was instantly a hit due to Horn's notoriety and the illustrator Grant Wood.
