"Newton, Maryland, 1973. The Vietnam Was is winding down, the Senate Watergate hearings are heating up. And in this pristine and meticulously planned community, an innocent misunderstanding is about to set the two men who control its quiet streets on a fateful collision course. Austin Swope is the white lawyer who made the dream of this new city a reality through years of cunning lawyering and smooth real-estate deals. Earl Wooten is the up-by-his- bootstraps black master-builder who with his bulldozers and backhoes raised Newton from its foundations - in the process escaping, he believes, a lifetime of racism and privation. They are best friends, as are their two teenaged sons, Teddy and Joel, each the repository of his father's deepest hopes. But cracks are appearing. In a city born of a vision of racial harmony, the seeds have been sown for a series of mixed signals, miscalculations, and entirely human failings to culminate in an inexorable slide toward destruction."; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall

"Tim Tetlow lived with his father and grandmother in old Salem at the time of the great trouble, when witches were hanged on Gallows Hill and even the cows wore red tags to keep off the evil eye.

Granny Tetlow said there were no witches in Salem. Then the townsfolk began to whisper about Granny herself. What did Tinker Tetlow and his son do then? Here is the story."
