Valley villages to be featured in latest book

September 13, 2013

COVENTRY—With his sixth book scheduled to come out on Monday, a local, well-known author continues to focus on the history of the multiple villages throughout the Pawtuxet Valley area.

Raymond Wolf, of Hope, author of “The Lost Villages of Scituate,” “The Scituate Reservoir,” “West Warwick,” “Foster” and “Pawtuxet Valley Villages” has written his newest book “Coventry.”
Like with all his books, Wolf spends about a year researching, collecting images, documents and putting the book together before it’s released to the public.
Although he did not have many donations of photographs for his first few books, Wolf said as they became popular, the historical information given to him by locals was immense.
“I had 11 people volunteer their collections to me for this new book,” he said. “It was a very good response for Coventry. The Greene Library was very helpful; one of the girls loaned me some postcards.”
