Reviews:
  • Ydely
Nonfiction that reads like fiction from the one and only Shirley Jackson. Remember reading this in elementary school, before I knew who Jackson was-- delighted to find it again. Very readable as an adult, great for kids of all ages who want to get a handle on this grim chapter in American life
  • Freighton
I only knew of Salem 'witchcraft' in part. I wanted to find out more, because in my par, ish in Nigeria we had a primary school child who disrupted her family with witchcraft phantasies. It seems to have been a 21st century repetition of the deception wrought in Salem.

  • Deorro
I bought this book for a history class and wrote a paper on it, but it was surprisingly entertaining. It's a good short read packed full of historical information.
  • Bloodfire
This book is clear and easy to follow, appropriate for all ages. It is subtly laced throughout with Jackson's wit and cynical humor.
  • Vojar
Perfect item to give as a gift to a young reader to encourage him to explore his interest in history, while reading about an actual occurance that may be only mentioned in passing in their history school curriculum.
  • inform
This is one of Shirley Jackson's lesser known books. Written for her son, I found it an easy read and full of information that surprised me. And I mean, written by Shirley Jackson the author of The Haunting and The Lottery.
