The Witchcraft of Salem Village (Landmark Books)

by

The Witchcraft of Salem Village (Landmark Books) Cover

 

Staff Pick

Have you ever read about the Salem Witch Trials? Shirley Jackson's Witchcraft of Salem Village superbly chronicles how suspicion can transform a small and rigidly structured community. Landmark's history series has an incredible author and title list, but this one tops them all.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Stories of magic, superstition, and witchcraft were strictly forbidden in the little town of Salem Village. But a group of young girls ignored those rules, spellbound by the tales told by a woman named Tituba.  When questioned about their activities, the terrified girls set off a whirlwind of controversy as they accused townsperson after townsperson of being witches. Author Shirley Jackson examines in careful detail this horrifying true story of accusations, trials, and executions that shook a community to its foundations.  

Synopsis:

Synopsis:

It began with nine girls. The year was 1692, and the girls lived in the little town of Salem Village, Massachusetts. Nearly every day they listened to a West Indian woman tell forbidden stories of magic, superstition, and witchcraft. Soon the villagers noticed the girls acting strangely. When asked what was wrong, the girls blamed their behavior on witches! Before it was all over, one innocent person after another was tried, convicted, and hanged in one of the most horrifying episodes in American history.
