From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    salvation, the son of Beeri, and author of the book of
    prophecies bearing his name. He belonged to the kingdom of
    Israel. "His Israelitish origin is attested by the peculiar,
    rough, Aramaizing diction, pointing to the northern part of
    Palestine; by the intimate acquaintance he evinces with the
    localities of Ephraim (5:1; 6:8, 9; 12:12; 14:6, etc.); by
    passages like 1:2, where the kingdom is styled 'the land', and
    7:5, where the Israelitish king is designated as 'our' king."
    The period of his ministry (extending to some sixty years) is
    indicated in the superscription (Hos. 1:1, 2). He is the only
    prophet of Israel who has left any written prophecy.
