Jonnycakes and Cream – Rhode Island Voices: Classic New England Stories


The personal histories in Jonnycakes and Cream – interviews, reminiscences, and poems – were collected and edited by Lucy O’Connor, herself a resident of Little Compton and an aficionado of local history. In the preface to the book, O’Connor states, “The town of Little Compton, Rhode Island, might well be considered only peripherally important by scholars of American history. Careful examination, however, will reveal the essence of American History can be found in Little Compton’s past.”

Jonnycakes and Cream offers a chance for readers to hear history directly from those who lived it.
