By G.I.Forbes on 8 Nov. 2013
Format: Paperback
This is the authors second book on this subject.The first was "Satans Conspiracy"being the first volume of"The History Of Scottish Magic and Witchcraft".
The book covers in excellent detail the years 1657-1662 when possibly 200+persons in Scotland were executed however,it is not clear how many had been convicted of witchcraft or had comitted some other serious crime.
Very well written and researched with some very interesting illustrations.
This black period in history with its panic and hysteria reminded me of the book "The Tribe That Lost Its Head"
A first class read.
