Special Order


In the late 17th century, the Salem Witch Trials led to the executions of 20 innocent people. Many explanations have been given for this tragedy, but there is no single reason it occurred. Instead, multiple factors converged to create a vortex of fear, suspicion, anger, and political tension. It was the perfect atmosphere to support the temporary suspension of common sense. Your readers will discover captivating details about this fascinating time in American history. The dangers of leveling accusations without proof and succumbing to panic are discussed in this engaging narrative, which is supplemented with a fact-filled timeline, annotated quotes, discussion questions, and primary sources.
