A haunting examination of groupthink and mass hysteria in a rural community The place is Salem, Massachusetts, in 1692, an enclave of rigid piety huddled on the edge of a wilderness. Its inhabitants believe unquestioningly in their own sanctity. But in Arthur Miller's edgy masterpiece, that very belief will have poisonous consequences when a vengeful teenager accuses a rival of witchcraft—and then when those accusations multiply to consume the entire village. First produced in 1953, at a time when America was convulsed by a new epidemic of witch-hunting, The Crucible brilliantly explores the threshold between individual guilt and mass hysteria, personal spite and collective evil. It is a play that is not only relentlessly suspenseful and vastly moving but that compels readers to fathom their hearts and consciences in ways that only the greatest theater ever can. "A drama of emotional power and impact" —New York Post

The Crucible is a study in the mass hysteria which led to the 1692 Salem witchcraft trials, concentrating on the fate of some of the key figures caught up in the persecution. It powerfully depicts people and principles under pressure and the issues and motivations involved. At the same time, it is also a parable for the events of the McCarthy era in the USA of the 1950s when anyone suspected of left-wing views was arraigned for 'Un-American Activities'.

Set against the rigors of frontier life in the West, Colorado Gold, was the dramatic first book in the new Treasure Quest historical fiction series. Bestselling author Marian Wells introduced her readers to Amy Randolph and Daniel Gerrett whose marriage started on shaky ground, nearly fell apart, and finally was restored. Out of the Crucible continues their story. As much as Amy loves Daniel, being the wife of an elder in the Methodist Episcopal Church during the circuit-riding days is difficult. Saying goodbye every Monday without knowing if he'll be back for the weekend, wondering if he's met up with Indians traveling between mining communities, the dreaded monotony and ruggedness of the mining town--her promise of love had been easy, but her commitment was being tested. Then into their lives breaks the Civil War. Since late 1861 the Texas Rangers have been pushing their way into New Mexico Territory, and a voluntary army from Colorado Territory is formed to defend their gold and their land. This finally takes place at the battle of Glorieta Pass with Amy and Daniel in the middle of it all! A powerful story of promises and commitments that challenge readers with a strong spiritual message.
