Combining the enchantment of youth with nostalgic memories of the landscape of Somerset, New Jersey, author Gordon Ward recalls in brilliant detail the Bernardsville neighborhood in which he grew up. While the world beyond grappled with Woodstock, Vietnam, Watergate and the era’s other great dramas, Ward went to school, played, explored the surrounding terrain, developed friendships, celebrated holidays, found a niche for himself within his family and much more. A Bit of Earth in the Somerset Hills, is a neighborhood tale that will resonate with all whose growing up years were filled with a sense of place.
