The friendly, relaxed atmosphere of the North Country belies a dark and sordid history: a time when it seemed that every city had its red-light district and every hamlet its brothel. Revisit an enigmatic period fraught with pistol duels and “tramp camps,” hermits on the run, “wild man” sightings and horse thieves. Local author Cheri Farnsworth has carefully researched and compiled the region’s most wicked stories, like the Potsdam man who literally scared his wife to death, the woman who was won in a game of cards and the little girl who was taken by gypsies, sold for fifty cents and then traded for a half dozen chickens.
