The Davis Homestead


Written by John Lawrence Davis, second edition, 2007, edited by James Boylan and Betsy Wade, with new photographs and a new introduction by Boylan.

Fifty years on a Lower Pawcatuck farm, an account rich in anecdote and history: how to cook skunk, how to stop dogs from eating eggs, why the Davises call a salt marsh “the Continental.” Completed before Davis’s death in 1989, this book does not flinch at ugly realities on the farm, granted to his forbear Thomas Stanton in 1652.        (dust jacket not included)
