Title: Grandpa's Oklahoma Farm: High on a Hill
Author: Juanita King
Description:

This book is a window into life on this farm called “Kiora.” Woodrow built the home, and barn, together they raised children, grandchildren, cattle, horses, dogs and cats there. Over the years Juanita has written stories/poems for friends and family based on day to day happenings. With encouragement from family and friends she has gathered some of her favorite stories/poems to share.

The poems in this book are a brief look into the life and people that resided there…. “On Grandpa’s Farm-High On The Hill.”

In 2005, after more than 30 years in Cushing, Oklahoma, the Kings sold “Grandpa’s Farm” and moved to Stillwater, Oklahoma, where they still reside. But they will never forget “Grandpa’s Farm High on the Hill” – the view, the animals and all the wonderful memories that living on our Oklahoma farm provided.
