The history of American witches is way weirder than you ever imagined. From bewitched pigs hell-bent on revenge to gruesome 20th-century murders, American Witches reveals strange incidents of witchcraft that have long been swept under the rug as bizarre sidenotes to history.
On a tour through history that's both whimsical and startling, we'll encounter 17th-century children flying around inside their New England home "like geese". We'll meet a father-son team of pious Puritans who embarked on a mission that involved undressing ladies and overseeing hangings. And on the eve of the Civil War, we'll accompany a reporter as he dons a dress and goes searching for witches in New York City's most dangerous neighborhoods.
Entertainingly listenable and rich in amazing details often left out of today's texts, American Witches casts a flickering torchlight into the dark corners of American history.

Interesting, pleasurable, informative
Fabulous. I could have not asked for a better narrator.
Let me just say, they could have not made a better a choice for a narrator - Love Coleen Marlo, ever since I listened to her reading "The Poisoner's Handbook" by Deborah Blum
If you enjoy ..let's say anything witches - history, folklore, myth..- if you love this world of magic and stories, you will love this book.
I absolutly loved listening to this..finish it in 2 days.
