This is a great book, and a rarity for the subject of witchcraft in Pennsylvania because it is academically and culturally reliable. I enjoyed this book, it backs up my own research and knowledge of the subject, as well as offers me a lot of new information. As a collector of powwowing information, I found this to be a great addition to my collection. The views expressed in the book are unbiased and based on the recorded information that we have available, with references to academic and historical resources in the back of the book. A must read for anyone studying powwow, PA folklore, witchcraft, or the Pennsylvania German culture.

Thomas has put together an excellent review of the many stories regarding witches and witchcraft in PA. Many of our residents are of German descent and this helps keep the stories alive. A good informational read.

Another great book by Thomas White! I've read all of his books on the folklore and history of Pennsylvania. I didn't know that Pennsylvania had so many witches. First, he explains the different categories of bewitching in PA paying close attention to Pennsylvania Dutch lore. Then, the fun part of the book describes Witch stories from all over PA, not just PA Dutch country. Interesting and disturbing. Mr. Whites's writing is straightforward, clear and descriptive. As with all his books, I hate when they end.

The only thing I was disappointed with was when I finished this book. I read it way too fast and wanted to indulge in it like a fine chocolate. The author has such a historical tone and leaves his own opinions out and delivers the stories raw and authentically. This was my first book by Thomas White and I am already purchasing another, Supernatural Lore of Pennsylvania.

This is a great academic look at how witchcraft and witches affected Pennsylvania throughout its history. It's very well written and readable too. I highly recommend it for anyone interested in a historical look at witchcraft in PA.

Well this volume contains a lot of interesting information, I found it very poorly organized and difficult to follow. Even after reading it, I'm still not sure if it was supposed to be organized chronologically or geographically. It seems kind of a mishmash of both , making it hard to follow .
