As She writes this book she introduces her account with an exhaustive narrative history of the Salem community from 1661 to 1691. With workmanlike precision, she provides historical details—such as the conflicts between church congregations and ministers and the increasing frequency of Indian attacks—as she contends that the hysteria arose most likely from the political, religious and social turmoil of the time. Using newly available diaries, journals and letters, Zeinert then reconstructs, for the first time, daily life during the height of the witch trials as well as accounts of court proceedings, arrests and suspects' confessions. The theme of this book is that people will do anything to get attition even if its is giving yourself to the devil.
I thought this book was kind of boring. I didnt like it that well, and i think everyone in this time period was crazy. I think that anyone who gives their self to the devil could be crazy.
