Great scholarly work!
This is a great book, heavily ladened in facts... but that is a good thing in a scholarly work such as this since is lends credence to her arguments. She argues that women accused of witchcraft tended to be older, married women who violated (in some way) the economic or social norms of colonial New England. If you are interested in the witchcraft trial in New England and have always wondered why the majority of accused witches were women, then this is the perfect book for you. I really enjoyed reading it and I think you will too!

Full of Facts
If you are looking for a book specifically on the facts of witches trials, get thisbook. otherwise, be wary. The book is so loaded with facts that you wonder if the author actually wrote this or if she just compiled data. A great book if you are writing a research paper, but not, if you are like me, a good choice for an extra credit bookWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
