I have been a devoted fan of Yankee Magazine for years. My favorite magazine, really. For one as obsessed with New England as I, Yankee Magazine remains the ultimate bible on this region. Having been around since the 1930's, they are expert at covering the history, the food, the lifestyle, the traditions, and the unique, humorous quirks of New England. So when I was asked to write an online article for Yankee Magazine, I was thrilled! I chose to write on Salem, Massachusetts; and to those who know me, I'm sure this comes as no surprise. Instead of concentrating on the witch trial history in this particular piece, I wrote of the author Nathaniel Hawthorne's connection to the area, his deep roots and influence remain in that city.
