The Salem Witch Trials is extensive in the authors research. I was amazed at the detail and the maps included were a bonus to help show where everyone was located. You really feel like you were right there in the rooms with the people being questioned. I was just mesmorized reading this and highly suggest it to anyone wanting the truth about the trials, not some heresay chronicle or what modern people think of witchcraft, if you want that goto the lifestyles section of the bookstore. This is a real account of the torture and pain and suffering of innocent people and thier families. The detailed listing of who was accused is worth buying the book alone, everything from time of death to how they died and who exactly was accused and if they were jailed, sentenced, hung, escaped, you name it, it is all there. As a bonus a few photos are given of artifacts, very nice addition. The authors writing is very smooth and easy to get into. I was worried this might read like some court recorders boring accounts but this book is far from it. If your at all interested in this part of american history pick this book up today. I doubt you will find a more accurate account of this sad time in our country's history.
