REPOST: Books about Ohio

Last week’s post about the Wright Brothers got us thinking about some other books about Ohio. Here is a list of books set or about Ohio. Each one deals with Ohio in a different way. We wanted to do some not so obvious and ones you might not think of or maybe you do. So different and not so different. Each one is probably available at your local bookstore or library.

Andrew R. L. Cayton

This is a good book about the people of Ohio






Any book by Neil Zurcher. He wrote lots of great travel books on places in Ohio.

This a book with six episodes about Homer Price, it takes place in Ohio. This a great kids or young adult book. Adults can read it also, so do not worry.




The Adventures of Captain Underpants

We have seen this book everywhere and one of use just has never read it. Never knew it was set in Ohio.

Here is what wikipedia says:

The series revolves around two fourth graders, George Beard and Harold Hutchins, living in Piqua, Ohio, and Captain Underpants, an aptly named superhero from one of the boys’ homemade comic books,
