Excerpt from Dorothy the Puritan: The Story of Strange Delusion
Wild, gloomy forests through whose interlacing boughs the sunshine scarcely penetrated, and whose weird recesses seldom echoed to the footsteps of the white man, stretched for many miles beyond the little town, or rather hamlet, of Salem. This forest was admirable, as it displayed the grand proportions of uncultivated nature. To the homesick, pining emigrants, however, seeking an asylum in an unknown country, its mysterious, unexplored depths were tremendous obstacles to be overcome. These early pioneers, whose destiny it was to settle here, were indeed courageous souls.
It was an age of superstition.
