Suspicion, Betrayal and Hysteria in 1692 Salem
The Pulitzer Prize-winning author of the national bestseller “Cleopatra” unpacks the mystery of the Salem Witch Trials.
In 1692, during an exceptionally raw Massachusetts winter, an entire village went insane. The pre-teen daughters of the local minister are mysteriously overcome by convulsions. Their uncontrollable screaming sends the superstitious community into a panic. Lacking other explanations, people begin to suspect Satanic influence—and the accusations of witchcraft soon fly like enchanted broomsticks. The town is pitted against itself, and by the time the hysteria fades, 19 men and women are hanged, another pressed to death. But what actually happened? Pulitzer Prize-winner Stacy Schiff’s The Witches: Salem, 1692 steps back from more than three centuries of hyperbole and supposition and gives us our most complete account yet of the first great American mystery.
