The legend of John Noforce- whose puzzling death may have been the result of a Native American Romeo and Juliet saga- 1676's bloody Nipsachuck massacre and the scandalous downfall of the poor farm and asylum are a few of the tales that linger among historic Smithfield's fields and forests. Once home to 'Apple King' Thomas K. Winsor and Arthur C. Gould, frustrated inventor of Rhode Island's first and only aircraft rest stop, this storied town has known both triumph and tragedy. Local author Jim Ignasher's expertly woven collection of vignettes speaks to the ever-enduring spirit of Smithfield's people. From illegal ice cream peddlers to a mysterious traveler killed by his own pet rattlesnake, the roots of this vibrant community extend far beyond its celebrated apple orchards

About the Author:

Jim Ignasher has been interested in history since his youth, but it is only in recent years that he has begun to write about it. He enjoys searching for long-forgotten stories that other authors may have overlooked, thus hoping to give his readers a new perspective on local history. He is active with the Historical Society of Smithfield, which operates and maintains the historic Smith-Appleby House Museum, and he occasionally gives talks on Smithfield's history. He is also a member of the New England Antiquities Research Association and Historic New England. Jim also writes a monthly local history column for Your Smithfield Magazine, and in May 2010, he received an award from the Rhode Island Press Association for an article he wrote titled Rescued from the Attic of Our Lives, "? which appeared in the magazine's November 2009 edition. This is his fourth book and his third with The History Press."
