A Delusion of Satan: The Full Story of the Salem Witch Trials

by

A Delusion of Satan: The Full Story of the Salem Witch Trials Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This acclaimed history illuminates the horrifying episode of Salem with visceral clarity, from those who fanned the crisis to satisfy personal vendettas to the four-year-old "witch" chained to a dank prison wall in darkness till she went mad. Antonia Fraser called it "a grisly read and an engrossing one."

Synopsis:

"An entertaining and suspenseful drama that is also a cautionary tale for our times."Boston Globe
