    The Gypsy minority has had a rough path throughout history, and by an unusual turn in this road, a number found themselves in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. By and large, their cultural practices and unwillingness to conform to social norms caused European countries to take drastic measures against Gypsies. In many cases, they were deported to the New World. Traveling with county fairs and carnivals, they made their way to the White Mountains, finding a niche for their fortunetelling practices. They became entertainers and made their livings off palm readings, card readings, their musical talents and even gazing into crystal balls. Gypsies have been misjudged and persecuted throughout history, but their romantic traditions and ideals have greatly been overlooked. Historian Bruce Heald delves into the fascinating history of a stereotyped minority and presents the poetry of their wanderings in the White Mountains of New Hampshire.
