In the Days of the Salem Witchcraft Trials
In 1692, only three generations after British colonists settled the New England shores, nineteen people were hanged for witchcraft in Salem, Massachusetts. How could this have happened? What kind of people were these who hanged their neighbors?
Marilynne Roach explores the world in which the trials took place, showing how the ordinary lives of people who sowed crops, made horseshoes, and played football formed the context for these extraordinary events.
