"Hex" tells the true story of what happened in Southern York County in November of 1928 - the murder of a hermit pow-wow doctor by 3 men who thought he had hexed them and their families. The author does a wonderful good job of telling the story in such a way that, without straying away from the facts, could lead the reader to believe he is reading a work of pure fiction. The story is fantastic and the fact that it took place a mere 80 odd years ago will really amaze you to see how we've grown as a people. I also recommend "Trials of Hex" by J. Ross McGinnis. "Trials" looks at the story more from the legal perspective and 90% of that book talks about the court case (it was written by a York lawyer). This book however, splits time between the culture and the murder (60% of book) and the trials that lead to the 3 assailants prison sentences (40% of book). Definitely worth reading if you are fortunate enough to find a good used copy.
