Publisher's Summary

The history of American witches is way weirder than you ever imagined. From bewitched pigs hell-bent on revenge to gruesome 20th-century murders, American Witches reveals strange incidents of witchcraft that have long been swept under the rug as bizarre sidenotes to history.

On a tour through history that's both whimsical and startling, we'll encounter 17th-century children flying around inside their New England home "like geese". We'll meet a father-son team of pious Puritans who embarked on a mission that involved undressing ladies and overseeing hangings. And on the eve of the Civil War, we'll accompany a reporter as he dons a dress and goes searching for witches in New York City's most dangerous neighborhoods.

Entertainingly listenable and rich in amazing details often left out of today's texts, American Witches casts a flickering torchlight into the dark corners of American history.

    "Loved it!"
    If you could sum up American Witches in three words, what would they be?

    Interesting, pleasurable, informative


    What about Coleen Marlo’s performance did you like?

    Fabulous. I could have not asked for a better narrator.


    Any additional comments?

    Let me just say, they could have not made a better a choice for a narrator - Love Coleen Marlo, ever since I listened to her reading "The Poisoner's Handbook" by Deborah Blum
    If you enjoy ..let's say anything witches - history, folklore, myth..- if you love this world of magic and stories, you will love this book.
    I absolutly loved listening to this..finish it in 2 days.
