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 namedTituba. 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 incareful detail this horrifying true story of accusations, trials, and executions that shook a community to its foundations.

Synopsis:

An account of the Salem witchcraft trials in 1692 describes the social and religious conditions surrounding the Salem witch hunts, the extensive trials and executions, and the aftermath of the hysteria. Reissue.
