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.
