The Witchcraft Delusion in Colonial Connecticut (1647-1697)

Historical Interests I thought it would be interesting to read this book to get another view of the hysteria that wasn’t limited to just Salem, Massachusetts. It didn’t offer something markedly different from Salem or the earlier happenings in Europe but it was nice to see if there were any different twists. What I didn’t like was the spelling of some words and the many typos that were sometimes hard to figure out. Overall it was still worth reading.
