Summary
"More than 300 years after the Salem witch trials led to the death of 19 innocent people, psychologist Linnda Caporael has been searching for a rational explanation for the symptoms of bewitchment. Her work has sparked an investigation into the wrenching convulsions, vivid deliriums, contaminated crops, hallucinogenic drugs, and a 2,3000 year-old murder victim buried in a bog. Was bread tainted with toxic fungus the real cause of the symptoms in Salem? Is this the same fungus from which LSD is derived? Can history's devastating witch hunts finally be explained?"--Container
