"Patricia of the Green Hills" is a collection of Filipiniana poems and short stories with reflections of life and folkways while growing up in the Philippines. Dr. Ramos never relaxed his own personal pursuit of the Muse and continued to write short stories, poems, and essays. At the same time, he devoted special attention to serious research on Philippine mythology and folklore. All these were done as he taught and performed administrative duties at the Philippine Normal College and later at the University of the East. We know that his legacy will fire the imagination of Filipino students and inspire them to know more about their own heritage, history, folkways and folklore and to write them down for others to enjoy and appreciate.
