The subject of the book is the notorious Witch trials of Salem (Massachusetts) in 1692. A story of Salem witches is told by an eye-witness, the puritan witch-hunter, clergyman-scientist and historian Cotton Mather. As a man of sword and faith and a prominent scientist, Mather was intrigued by the events that occurred in Salem and he wrote against of using torture to get testimonies from women of Salem. He was also against the use of spirit witnesses as a reliable source of information. Despite his efforts to discover the true essence behind these evil forces, many innocent people in Salem were convicted of their crimes of practicing witchcraft and making a pact with the Devil. Many witches of Salem eventually faced torture and finally a hangman’s noose in the gallows. Mather continued his work as a researcher and witch-hunter for the rest of his life, but what he faced as a young man in Salem, haunted him for the rest of his life.
