In the tale, written in 1927, an unnamed narrator pieces together the story of an area known by the locals as the “blasted heath” in the wild hills west of Arkham, Massachusetts. Listening to the experiences of an old man by the name of Ammi Pierce, the narrator learns the story of an uncanny calamity which befell a local farmer and his family many decades earlier. (Summary by Piotr Nater and Wikipedia).
