A week on Granddaddy’s Farm is a historical fiction for children with the setting in July of 1943 on a farm among the hills of West Virginia. It is based on the childhood experiences of the author and portrays life on the farm experienced by typical families living without electricity, gas, or running water. In Millie’s visit she helps her grandparents and Aunt Susie with chores, such as carrying wood for cooking, pumping water from a well, and picking and canning vegetables. She meets her cousins, plays in the woods and stream, and has fun adventures. The religious beliefs held by the family are evident throughout the visit as Millie’s grandfather tells stories about his life as a circuit-riding preacher in the 1800’s. Her aunt expresses words of wisdom for life that are long remembered.
