Death in Salem: The Private Lives Behind the 1692 Witch Hunt By Diane Foulds Cover Image


During the 1692 witch trials, more than 150 people were arrested. An estimated 25 million Americans-including author Diane Foulds--are descended from the twenty individuals executed. What happened to our ancestors? Death in Salem is the first book to take a clear-eyed look at this complex time, by examining the lives of the witch trial participants from a personal perspective.
