Summary
Frankie Silver was hanged for the murder of her husband. Later, people claimed that a tree growing near the cabin in which Charlie Silver had been buried was "accurst". This work uses the "accurst" tree metaphor for the grip the story of the murder has had on the imaginations of the community
