Summary
Many people think of witches as Halloween costumes of old curmudgeonly women with pointy hats, but many kinds of witches, wizards, sorcerers, and warlocks have populated mythology for thousands of years. This book describes the history of witches and witchcraft, including the Salem witch trials and modern-day Wiccans. Readers will also learn about wizards, warlocks, and other kinds of sorcerers. Exciting computer-generated illustrations accompany the engaging, fact-filled narrative.
