It was the purpose of this study to gather primary source material, and corroborate that material whenever possible, concerning the creative genesis of each of the twenty-two published trade books for children written by Howard Pease. It attempted to determine to what extent Pease's past experiences were incorporated into his novels, as well as those external forces which influenced the genesis of these trade books.
