This is a great book! I found it to be very interesting and educational. It provides captivating real life examples of how people were often wrongly accused and tormented (and sometimes, unfortunately, even put to death) for evils they were alledged to have committed. It examines the lives of numerous individuals and the trials and tribulations they were subjected to. It gives their names, detail information about who they were, where they lived, and it gives clearly illustrated examples of how the judicial system of those past and harsh times worked. It is an excellent textbook about the complex atmosphere that existed during these horrendous witchcraft persecutions---Mara.
