Included in this book is a Glossary of Wampanoag Indian words, some of which are very familiar to Rhode Islands. Read about Little Compton's whipping post; paranormal activity in the Chase-Cory House; learn how Sin and Flesh Brook got its name and explore Weetamoe Woods and the Pocasset cedar swamp fight.
