Devils, witches, ghostly apparitions, spectral disturbances... Whether real or imaginary, the end result proved ghastly--20 people tortured and hanged in 1692. Mass hysteria?
Psychological stress brought on by the brutal Indian Wars? A devious act of personal revenge? Drug-induced psychosis? Demonic possession?
Meld with the worldview of 17th-century New England Puritans--to whom witchcraft was real, dangerous, and a capital crime--as our vivid, sometimes shocking, recreations reveal the horrifying hardships of life and how superstition filled inexplicable dark corners.
Period transcripts, diaries, and letters bring to life the infamous trials and executions.
