Stories of magic, superstition, and witchcraft were strictly forbidden in the little town of Salem Village.

Stories of magic and witchcraft were strictly forbidden in Salem, Massachusetts in the 1600s, but, as The Witchcraft of Salem Village tells it, a group of young girls ignored those rules, spellbound by tales told by a woman named Tituba. When questioned about their activities, the terrified girls set off a whirlwind of controversy as they accused resident after resident of being witches. Author Shirley Jackson examines in careful detail this horrifying true story of accusations, trials, and executions that shook a community to its foundations.
