Summary

Summary

In January 1692, some girls in Salem Village began to act strangely and it was concluded that they were bewitched. The author discusses the Salem witch trials and provides insight into the reasons why such an atrocity took place. Excerpts from the various testimonies given at the trials, photographs of the famed witch house, and inscriptions from the gravestones of some of the accused enrich this intriguing title.
