The Witches: Suspicion, Betrayal, and Hysteria in 1692 Salem


Drawing masterfully on the archives of the Salem witch trials, Stacy Schiff makes palpably real for us one of the most electrifying chapters in American history. The Witches brings early American anxieties to the fore and aligns them brilliantly with our own. (paperback, 2015)
