1910. Joseph Crosby Lincoln is perhaps Cape Cod's most prolific writer. Through some 50 novels, numerous poems, short stories, and magazine pieces that were written in the first half of the 20th century, the rest of the country came to have an image of Cape Cod that has lasted well beyond his death. The book begins: Mr. Simeon Phinney emerged from the side door of his residence and paused a moment to light his pipe in the lee of the lilac bushes. Mr. Phinney was a man of various and sundry occupations, and his sign, nailed to the big silver-leaf in the front yard, enumerated a few of them. Carpenter, Well Driver, Building Mover, Cranberry Bogs Seen to with Care and Dispatch, etc., etc., so read the sign. See other titles by this author available from Kessinger Publishing.
