Mary P. Wells Smith's (1840-1930) historical fiction captivated the minds and imaginations of young readers beginning in the early 20th century. Her stories about the life of early New England settlers were particularly engaging. She was photographed in the doorway of the Elijah Williams house in Deerfield, Massachusetts, evoking the memory of a scene from her novel "Boy Captive of Deerfield".
