Salem, Massachusetts, 1692.
After many young girls show the terrible signs of bewitchment accusations are tossed leading to one of the biggest showings of injustice that ever took place. Around twenty men and women were charged with witchcraft and hanged in Salem during 1692. Torture is speculated to be used on the children of the accused witches. But why? Why did the accusers cry out in pain and point fingers towards their neighbors and own family? This amazing narrative shows great insight to the over three-hundred year old mystery that has captivated the world. Marc Aronson, author of Sir Walter Ralegh and The Quest for El Dorado, tells the fascinating story in a way that will leave you wanting to search for more.
