First of a series of books based on New England folklore as part of Swordsmith`s new imprint of nonfiction books of New England interest, Ellen Larned`s books have been cult favorites since their original publication in the late nineteenth century. Filled with fascinating historical tidbits, genealogical treasures, strange stories, and out-and-out gossip, Larned looks at the development and changes and all the minutiae of 300 years of life in a typical New England county with disapprovingly moralistic eyes but a wonderful ear for detail. Includes an index of names with nearly 28,000 entries a genealogical treasure trove. Two books no follower of New England history or life should be with out.
