Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book contains information about Salem, but also other instances of witchcraft. Apparently, there were relatively few instances when the populace strongly suspected the presence of witches. There were enough instances over time that demonstrated that witchcraft was an ongoing concern. However, the outbreaks were isolated and few were executed--much better situation than fear of witches in Europe, especially Germany. The book also provides the reader with a clear sense of living in New England. Life was much harder than depicted in stories and pictures of Puritans.

Found a family history member testifying in a lawsuit involving a woman who had been hanged as a witch several years earlier. It provided a slice of life in New Haven Connecticut in 1654.
