Summary
"In Crane Pond, Richard Francis reveals a side of the history that is not often recounted, as he skillfully constructs a portrait of Samuel Sewall, the only judge to later admit that a terrible mistake had been made. What begins as a touching story of a bumbling man tasked with making judgements in a society where reason is often ephemeral, quickly becomes the chilling narrative we know too well. And when public opinion wavers, Sewall learns that what has been done cannot be undone."--
Summary
A thrilling new telling of a significant part of U.S. history, which marries rigorous research and an astute understanding of a deeply complex character, follows Samuel Sewall -- father, anti-slavery advocate, defender of Native American rights and presiding judge at the Salem Witchcraft Trials in 1692, where he sentenced 20 innocent women to death
