Product Description

About the Author
Marguerite Fitch worked for many years as a school secretary in Newton Centre, Massachusetts, the town where Samuel Francis Smith had lived one hundred years earlier. Two things happened there which started her on the way to this book. First, school children contributed money to save the old Smith Homestead from an auctioneer's block. Second, she noticed that her school library had no books about Smith. While still in Newton Centre, she studied primary source materials and contacted Smith descendents living in the area. Later, she moved to California and began work on this book and other writings. She also speaks in public schools, helping to make history come alive for children. The city of Lakewood presented her with an award for outstanding service to school children.
