Nonfiction / History

The sequel to the smash hit everyone digs, Salem Secret Underground!

Salem, Ma was once the second richest port in America. With this wealth came great power. People from Salem have shaped American history; for good and bad.

People from Salem have tried to give New England back to the British during the War of 1812, dug 3 miles of tunnels to avoid customs, assassinated a president and got away with it, planned a series of economic collapses every 20 years, and were behind the biggest opium trade in history.

Also people from Salem were the first to light their home by electricity, created the phone, built electric cars in the 1800's, patented the #2 pencil, and more.

 Christopher Jon Luke Dowgin

Christopher Jon Luke Dowgin is usually called, Chris. He lives in Salem. In fact if you ever ventured into Salem you probably have seen him wearing a 12 foot long scarf walking through town drinking a quart of milk and eating a dark Cadbury bar. If you want to help support his habit, he always is willing to accept a Cadbury bar and some milk from you. Sometimes he answers to "Viking Chris", "The Norseman", and even "Fritter" by one large Indian. At one local music festival it was said that if you have been in Salem for 15 minutes and have not met Chris something is wrong. So if you ever see him in Salem or traveling about, stop and say hi... He might just draw you a picture in your book. Click here for the latest news from Chris.

Winner of 3 Mass. Cultural Grants for his Salem Trilogy. He has written 12 books. Illustrated 10. Salem Secret Underground: The History of the Tunnels in the City is his first foray into non-fiction which was followed by the hit Sub Rosa.

Oh yeah, he still is looking for investors to build his event center on 200 acres in Manchester-by-the-Sea. Vingolf will have a highway exit off 128 thirty minutes from Boston. Vingolf is a premiere wedding destination, 5 star accommodation, conference center, and music showcase. For the gallery of Chris Dowgin's illustrations click here!
