The "Growing Erbs" series, comedic and insightful tales of spending childhood days on a family farm, is now available in book form.

Seven books, including a cookbook, provide a "snapshot of life" on a farm outside of Park Rapids in the 1960s.


Sheila Erb Caza, who penned the majority of the books, was 6 when her family realized every child's dream, moving to a farm, replete with cows, horses and a pony, chickens and pigs, with a dog and cat thrown in for good measure.
