Hempfield

by David Grayson

In "HEMPFIELD," David Grayson tells his story of a little country printing office and how romance entered there. You will like Nort with his boyish enthusiasms for the uplift of country journalism, Fergus, red-haired and Scotch, the old captain with the "trenchant pen" and Anthy, lovable and brave, owner of the Hempfield Star. "Hempfield" is David Grayson's first novel, filled with all the charm of his earlier "Adventures."

The New York Times Book Review says of "Hempfield": "This newest 'adventure' will take its place among the group of novels that are really American, through and through. From beginning to end this small-town chronicle is interesting. And the author writes with sympathy and charm. It is a picture of a phase of American life, a series of vivid sketches of a few American men and an American woman. Anthy is one of the realest and most lovable heroines of contemporary American fiction."
