Many of the chapters (of Nissitissit Witch) were based on events that occurred in North Village, and information was derived from published articles in The Times Free Press. Other Internet research was used for authenticity, such as the crossing of Baltimore by the Union troops from Lowell. Additional research pertained to the various chemicals and heavy metals to which the villagers were exposed and the resultant health effects of such exposures.
With numerous newspaper and magazine articles written about the unusual events that allegedly occurred, North Village is steeped in myth to this day. Some homeowners continue to report that their houses are haunted. My saga deviates from the microcosm of North Village and examines why some of these bizarre incidents may have happened. Finally, my story makes us wonder about the Indian souls who inhabited the valley for thousands of years. Most importantly, it illustrates the power they had with the land, long before any settlers had invaded their valley.
