Yet, in medieval Europe and colonial America, more than 12,000 lost their lives this way.

The proof of witchery was often as scanty as a physical deformity or as outrageous as the water test: If the tied-up suspect floated in water, they were guilty- if they sunk, they were innocent! Readers will be fascinated by reports of famous and lesser-known witch trials accompanied by vivid photographs, colorful illustrations, and intriguing fact boxes. Theyll learn how dubious accusations, circumstantial evidence, and a lack of scientific knowledge proved fatal for so many.
