Dark History of Penn’s Woods II: Unusual Deaths, Crimes, and Hauntings in Southeastern Pennsylvania
Pennsylvania’s long history has been plagued with tragedy, disasters, deaths, and murders. Even the trans-Atlantic voyage was often deadly. Devastating fires were not uncommon, and there are more victims of homicide than anyone cares to count. All this and more help make up the unusual history of the second state of the union.
Dark History of Penn’s Woods II by writer and researcher Jennifer L. Green is her second book of “Unusual Deaths, Crimes and Hauntings in Southeastern Pennsylvania.” After the success of her first book, Green curated and wrote nine more grim tales. Green explores the tragic history from “Coffin Ships” to axe murders to a serial killer. Green gives an in-depth background to each subject. Each story includes historical illustrations and photographs to help bring the history to life.
Each chapter is a well-written account of a dark history of Pennsylvania’s past. Green does not sensationalize crimes or murder but keeps the book interesting with information and accurate stories. This is a quick read for those interested in true historical crimes and tragedies.
