I have only been to Massachusetts once before and it was to visiti Salem. I read this book because I've always been interested in Salem and the witch trials and I was interested in finding out more about Massachusetts then just Salem. There is many stories in this book and it really shows you that there are many more haunted places in Masschusetts then just Salem. I really liked the Native American stories, even though they were a bit sad. I was a bit surprised by some of the stories and some of the places really sounded interesting and I would like to visit one day. Very nicely written and a good read for people who want to know more about Massachusetts and it's hauntings and legends.
