More than two hundred people were accused. Thirty were found guilty, nineteen of whom were executed by hanging (fourteen women and five men). One other man, Giles Corey, was pressed to death for refusing to plead, and at least five people died in jail.

By Marilynne K. Roach.

In 1692, only three generations after British colonists settled the New England shores, nineteen people were hanged for witchcraft in Salem, Massachusetts. How could this have happened? What kind of people were these who hanged their neighbors? Marilynne Roach explores the world in which the trials took place, showing how the ordinary lives of people who sowed crops, made horseshoes, and played football formed the context for these extraordinary events.

Doesn't cover the trials in detail, but is more about the times, or as the title says, the "days of" those trials. It clarifies some of the related Biblical beliefs of the colonists as well as Europeans, and shows that the Salem area was not rigidly uniform but quite varied and that the Salem trials were similar to other trials of the times. My impression of the book's conclusion might be summarized as: The concerns may be valid, the intentions good, but unproven accusations aren't going to result in the correct convictions.

This is a wonderful little book to introduce students to the historical and cultural background that led to the Salem Witch Trials. The trials never made sense to me as a student, but this cleared up a lot of my misunderstanding. It gave us a much better understanding of not only the Trials, but the Puritans themselves.

As a Pagan, I wished to teach my two children about the Salem Witch Trials and chose this book as a jumping point. Never before have my children complained about being read to. The text is dry and boring. What's more, the author chooses to present witches as agents of Satan while making numerous excuses as to why christians murdered so many people (human sacrifices) in the name of their god. Needless to say, I trashed the book and have started teaching the history of the witch trials in Salem using adult sources as reference points.
