America Bewitched: The Story of Witchcraft After SalemBooks
'America Bewitched' is a history of witchcraft in America -- from the Salem witch trials of 1692 to the present day.
The infamous Salem trials are etched into the consciousness of modern America, the human toll a reminder of the dangers of intolerance and persecution. The refrain "Remember Salem!" was invoked frequently over the ensuing centuries. As time passed, the trials became a milepost measuring the distance America had progressed from its colonial past, its victims now the the righteous and their persecutors the shamed. Yet the story of witchcraft did not end as the American Enlightenment dawned -- a new, long, and chilling chapter was about to begin.
