Summary

This riveting history explores the annihilation of tens of thousands of women of spirit and intelligence under the guise of the "witch hunts" of Europe. Barstow doesn't just recount the crimes, she names the victims, and, in so doing, makes their torturous fates all the more terrifying. "A gold mine of information and sources for further study".--Ms. Illustrations.
